Bacon Roasted Green Beans and Potatoes are an all-time favorite summer time side dish of ours. We always have plenty of green beans from the garden on hand, it takes only minutes to prepare, and the bacon crisps and flavors the vegetables perfectly.
There’s too many spreading wings around here for this mama bird to handle. Now Elliot’s a bonafide preschooler, Finn’s started kindergarten, Nolan’s in 4th, and Clara…I can’t even…a middle schooler. Ew. Hate it.
The toughest pill to swallow has been Clara’s middle school status. I’m entering unchartered parental waters. My unfamiliarity, plus lack of glowing anecdotes about adolescent girls, makes me very apprehensive. Am I inevitably doomed?
Clara’s always been exceptionaly sweet, selfless, accommodating, and open, so years of surly, disheartening behavior seems inconceivable. (This is where I’d like to take credit for all the legwork I put into turning out such an extraordinary human being. Thank you. The time and effort was
non-existent because she was born with a personality far superior to mine truly extensive). Do hormones just come along and take a big, fat dump on all that delightfullness?…
