Carrot blow-darts

Because we are at the end of our groceries and I haven't yet been shopping today, the boys had carrots for breakfast. (My awesome neighbor gave us some canned fruit last night, but with my slow morning brain cells, I forgot about that until....now.) So there are carrots everywhere, and Savvy is perfectly happy with one in each fist.
So--last night I accidentally broke the towel rod in the bathroom. And my darling Reed just came up to me and said, "Mom, I can't get the carrot out." With the towel rod held out to me. Yes, there was a carrot stuck in the towel rod. I tried to push it out with a pencil, but it was too far. Finally I gave up and blew on the end. And wouldn't you know, the carrot shot out and flew twelve feet before smacking the wall and rolling away. :)

I have a feeling they'll remember this when they're ten or so and into creative weaponry. Who knew carrots could be so deadly?

Isn't it amazing how we can be so creative with what to feed the kids if we need to be, but I have a hard time every night coming up with something exciting. I would love that list from your mom about work outs. Do you like the Biggest Loser workout?
