One of the things I look forward to the most with the weather cooling off is eating outside on the patio. Partly because I like the sound of the birds from the neighbor’s trees and the way the sun streams through the branches leaving cool designs on the grass. But what I like the most is how much cleaner my kitchen floor is when the kids (especially this guy) eat outside. You see that pile collecting underneath him – yea, that usually gets smashed to the floor. But outside, we just hose it off – and occasionally we hose him off too!

By the time this guy learns how to use his fork, we’ll have another one throwing cheerios on the floor. Motherhood is just a cycle!
