Spaghetti and Irony

Sometimes I'm not sure I know a whole lot. But I know that kids love spaghetti. Here's proof:








We ate spaghetti three times last week. Didn't mean to...just kind of happened that way! But I don't think my kids minded at all. I didn't either, as something as simple as spaghetti is a little different wherever you go. These pics are from last Wednesday when we went to go visit and play with the kiddos at Ryves Youth Center where I used to work. One of the many awesome things about Ryves is that if you're there volunteering at dinner time, you are more than welcome to sit and eat with the kids, which is one of my favorite times there. You can just hang out with them and chat. Have to say the Tastiest Spaghetti of the Week Award, though, goes to our friends the Swanks who had us over for dinner. That sauce was YUMMY, Holli!

Now here's the irony. When we went to Louisville a couple weeks ago, we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. Guess what the kids wanted to eat? Macaroni and Cheese. Go figure.

P.S. I will do my best to try to post more than once this week and stop my blog slacktacularness...

Mmmmm. I like spaghetti, too.
And macaroni and cheese.
And ravioli...
And (somebody hold me back, quick ;-) )

A spaghetti meal isn't complete until it's all over your face. At least, that's how I eat my spaghetti. I might need to make some for dinner tonight now...

We're having spaghetti tonight too! I'll gather the napkins!

I'm slackin' off too when it comes to blogging. There are just so many more fun things to do outside in the summer, and my computer is in the cold, dark basement. Blech. Don't worry about it; while we miss hearing from you, it's important for you to spend time with your kids!

Where would parents be without spaghetti? It ranks as one of the top five necessities, right up there with Cheerios and sippy cups. I've slacked on my blog lately, too. It's summer...no worries. :)

I think spaghetti (or skapetti as my kids used to call it) is one of the basic food groups. They still love it. And that last pic could totally be RB on spaghetti night. He's that guy.

Beth, could you please send Candy a bib for RB? You're a gem.

Here's what you do...

Leave a comment on my blog, then cut and paste it here. Your comments are blog worthy.

I have the same picture as that Baby Jay one for both my kids. Gotta love a spaghetti stained baby face!
