the peanut butter and jelly meltdown

This is one of those posts that I should have written many, many, MANY months ago. But there's nothing in the rule books that says I can't go back in time! Now that I have come to the conclusion that this blog is mostly for me to be able to go back and see the memories I've made with my family, my creative inspirations, and organized spurts of my life, I have a little (a lot of) catching up to do! With that said, you may start seeing random posts from me in an effort to do just that...catching up.

By the end of the summer (2010) Mikayla had her peanut butter and jelly making skills perfected...even down to her cutting off her own crusts. One August day she showed me her masterpiece! I was so proud because she got out all of the ingredients and made it ALL by herself!

About a month later at the end of September (2010), Mikayla decided to try again making her own sandwich, but this time I had no clue she was doing this!! All of a sudden she is in my craft room where I was working and very upset about something. She was very concerned that she had used the wrong kind of strawberry jelly. Instead of grabbing the bottle of strawberry jelly spread, she had grabbed the strawberry syrup topping (for ice cream). Poor little thing was so distraught. The video below doesn't even capture the amount of tears when she came in to tell me what had happened. This is of her telling me again, so I could capture this sweetness on video. (never mind all of the random junk on the countertop, OK?)

Poor thing! She was so upset about that sandwich! I'm just impressed she can make her own sandwich...I don't let my boys do much in the kitchen because I know it will be everywhere!!

Poor girl! That is great that she can make her own sandwich. I know how it is when something doesn't turn out how you want it.

Oh, that is SO precious in a sad twisted way. How did you manage not to laugh while recording?!

Bless her heart. Don't you wish we had big problems like that. What a sweet post!
