May I take your order please?
While my husband is traveling, I always try to feed my children
healthy, well-balanced dinner. We always sometimes sit together at the dining room table to eat as a family (minus one)! Tonight was (not) one of those nights!!
My children were given the same question my husband probably heard 2,000 miles away. "May I take your order?" However, we were not in a restaurant, and I will be the one doing the dishes at the end of the night (a.k.a. next morning). Tonight, my kids asked if they could make their OWN dinner. This was music to my ears, as I am realizing my children will soon be at the age when they
whine tell me they are hungry...I can point at the kitchen and say "go make something to eat!"
My daughter has learned to make Eggo waffles...which means she can use a toaster. I might have to reconsider the ban on PopTarts in our home!! Meanwhile, my son (yes, he does wear his roller blades in the house) decided he too would make his own dinner..."peanut and jelly sandwich". (I did have to get the bread, open the jars, get the knife and supervise...so I might as well have made him dinner)...but I always try to be a parent that allows my children to be self-sufficient (a.k.a. I sat and looked at the Golden Globe red carpet outfits online).
My children promptly took their dinner downstairs to watch TV...something they never get to do when my husband is home. These are little broken rules that make it a bit easier for them while their dad is
eating at restaurants and sleeping in his own hotel room on the road!!!
I of course immediately started cleaning up the kitchen, or not!
By the way, what were your thoughts on The Golden Globe fashions?
