You know how I often talk about how important it is to get your kids in the kitchen with you?!
I have just proven myself completely and totally and absolutely right about the whole thing. (Just in case we had been wondering about that.)
I’ve been sick the past few days…but everyone around here still wants to eat. Don’t they know that when mama is sick, the world must stop until I wake up and feel better? Huh-uh…it just doesn’t happen.
I have NEVER been so thankful that I’ve taught my kids their way around the kitchen. Daddy’s doing great taking over in there, but sometimes he’s not home when the boys are hungry. Or when I need something to eat. AND, Daddy has been working hard trying to juggle all his work and mine too. How nice for the boys to get a meal started so that he doesn’t have to come home and do all the cooking too.
My boys aren’t at the point where I can just turn them loose in the kitchen and tell them to whip up some spaghetti. But because of all the time they’ve spent in there learning and working with me, they can go in there and do the whole thing with me just laying on the couch telling them what to do. I’m so proud of them.
So just in case you’ve been meaning to do it, but you haven’t yet…here’s my Works for me Wednesday tip: Get your kids in the kitchen with you so that when you need them to take over, they can!!! (Here, I’ve written an entire series on it.) Read it then do it. It’s important for their future, and someday when you’re sick and need your kids to bring you something besides a box of cereal with a plastic fork, you’ll really be glad you did. (Yesterday I walked Asa through making us some awesome fruit slushies that totally hit the spot with me. He did great!!)
For the record this Works for me Wednesday…being sick….does not work for me. To quote my youngest, Malachi, “My don’t love it.” :)
