Oh Baby Alex, as my youngest calls him, is super cuddlable and smiley. Dd2 is all over him whenever we see him and that reminds me of why I always thought having another babe when the preceding one was about 3 was a better idea than when they are just 2!

It's just 2am and I've been baking banana muffins and cleaning up the kitchen while listening to the BBC world service talking about no-till farming to protect the soil from erosion. Very interesting. I'm trying to keep my kitchen a bit cleaner since I did a challenge on the decluttering thread a couple of weeks ago: pic of kitchen before and pic of kitchen 30 mins after. I try to get it clear most days but on others I am left wondering why I am trying to prepare food for six in a foot square space of counter top when it could be cleaner and tidier!

It looks better now and the muffins are out. I'll go and snuggle dh in bed now

poxybat -- I read your thread before going to bed. You rock! Here, here to vaginavism!

DS is super clingy, whiny, sensitive, contrarian, weepy, irritable, out of sorts....well, like most men when they're sick. In his defense, I should say that it appears that he has an ear infection, which having had a few myself I know are pretty painful. Poor little guy.

I need to go bake bread, but that'll have to wait til DH gets home cause I've got a lap child stuck to my breast.

healing vibes to your little guy east carolina

Thanks, mf, I think they're helping. nak, lol.
post #289 of 504
east carolina - I hope he's feeling even better now. Ear pain is yucky. Keeping nakking is about all you can do.


Have you tried no-knead bread? You can do it one handed with a babe on your boob if you need to! It is good for us nocturnal folk too because you can prepare it very late at night then tip it out mid afternoon and bake it when the oven is already on for dinner early evening.

I make a no-knead bread regularly, one that seems to be less complicated than that one.
it's something like
1 3/4 cups warm water
1 tbsp salt
1/4 tsp instant yeast (yep, that's all)
1 cup of flour
mix it all together in a bowl, cover and leave 4-8 hours
add another 2 cups flour and mix well, cover and leave another 6-8 hours.
spinkle 2 tbsp flour around the edges and fold into the centre, leave 3 hours
(you can repeat or skip that last step as you like; the more the better)
bake in a very hot oven for about 1/2 hour, covered, then lowe the temp a little for 10 mins more
enjoy

Hi, kind of joining. I'm usually up very late (I have insomnia and have had it since I was a kid) Good to know there will be others up when I'm awake and bored
post #292 of 504
I don't find he NYT one too complicated as it needs next to no attention. I mix it all at once then leave the whole lot for a bit over 12 hours then flop it out onto a teatowel for a while til its grown again then in goes into the pot. Cooking in the post with a lid on makes the most amazing crust.

I make pizza dough the time intensive way though and knead for 10 mins. Is there a quicker (lazier) Sometimes kneading is therapeutic though

post #295 of 504
yeah, it's funny how many people are in all the same tribes as me. I start thinking MDC is a very small place, and then sometimes venture into other threads and find all these people I don't recognise
post #296 of 504
Wow, many bread-bakers in this thread. I actually love to knead bread and DS loves to add the flour, he calls himself my sous chef

His ear is totally better, it was really just that one day. So now I don't know if it really was an infection or if breastmilk is the most sh*t-kicking cure for ear infections. I'm more inclined to believe the latter. ;-)

Welcome to our tribe AFwife.

We're about to watch a movie, it's 11:30

glad your boy's ear is better.
I'm just doing some study and catching up on emails.

Another night owl here. All of us are. H gets antsy about people knowing the kids are up so late, he won't let them play outside after it gets dark. Lately they've been going to sleep by midnight, but it was 1 or 2. The only problem is that it makes it hard to do anything. The world is definitely not set up for us night people.

What method do you use? I've been trying to find out the best way to do it for this baby...assuming the placenta doesn't fall out in the toilet like it did with ds2.

I was the same way growing up. My parents had their own janitorial business so my brother and I were always up until they got home (at least 11or 12) My parents used to kid that I was a "little vampire" because I'd get really alert when the sun went down. That just never changed. When people ask I tell them that I've had horrible insomnia my whole life...in reality, I just prefer the night time

rinse placenta, run it through the blender to make a paste, pour it into a fruit leather tray in the food dehydrator (or you can do it in a very slow oven (like 100deg) for 10 hours or so), then you have placenta leather. chop it up and into the blender again to make a powder. then fill empty capsules with the powder.
