Pesto Shrimp Tacos

September 23, 2014

It could be quite messy eating tacos but the kids love having them just for that reason. 🙂

I haven’t been in the greatest mood. I think part of the reason is that i don’t get enough sleep and i have so much on my mind. Marc is almost 18 months now and still wakes up so many times at night. He drinks about 4-5 bottles through out the night so i hardly get a full 2 hours of sleep. He doesn’t take the pacifier so the bottle consoles him. I know I know. Everyone tells me i have to just let him cry for a few days but i just don’t have the heart. I keep saying its ok he will grow out of it. I have to figure out a way!!!

So summer is over and Halloween is just around the corner. I don’t know why and i hope you don’t hate me for this but i hate halloween. Kids love it but it my least favorite holiday. I prefer christmas a million times over.:)
