WWD: When Life Hands You Lemons...

...you make lemonade. DUH.

Here's my recipe. Assemble the following:

Three 3-year olds, preferably at 6:45 a.m.
One mommy (gone to the gym)
One daddy (asleep in the bedroom for approximately 30 minutes to an hour)

After pulling a chair up to the stove (SAFETY FIRST!), in a tupperware pitcher pulled from under the cabinet, mix the following items:
1 mostly full bottle Mrs. Butterworth's syrup (lite only)
1/2 gumball machine of pretzel M&Ms
partial box Skittles
1 box raisins
1 mostly full jar of red pepper flakes
1 mostly full jar of Sprinkles
2 lemons, full
1 apple, full
Chocolate milk mix
Strawberry milk mix

Stir all above ingredients together, making sure to fully coat the M&Ms and Skittles.
Be sure to keep "lemonade" contained mostly to the pitcher and countertop.

Attempt again the following morning before mommy catches you and throws you in "the clink," (i.e., your bed with the tent fully zipped and clipped). Rattle the door handle the next subsequent morning to make a third attempt before realizing that daddy has switched the door handle around so you are locked in.
I don't expect parents of one child to understand or agree with turning a door handle around, but as my pal Pam says, "Only another triplet parent wouldn't call CPS on us..." True dat, Pam. True. Dat.

I cannot believe it. The recipe sounds so good.
I am fascinated with your accessories. I buy so many things on Ebay but for some reason accessories is not one of them I see, here on the blogs, lots of cute things girls get. I think I am off to
