Italian Lemon Shrimp

It’s been a great week and a bad week.  Bad first. Eddie has decided that he is not going to use his words when Otto takes has something he wants or he’s frustrated.  Instead he’s going to yell at the top of his lungs endlessly until mommy cries from overload.  So that’s fun. Good:  I got to see one of my most favorite people twice this week after not seeing him for a couple months.  So happy for that.  And we made him sing.  It was great. Are you hungry?
