Well, for me the "problem" has seen a solution! Each day for the past week one of the kids has helped me with the preparation of a meal. We have to eat and do so many times throughout the course of the week so it seemed embarrasingly obvious that this would bring about the time with each child that I had been desiring.
One day this week Brother helped me with breakfast. Here he is helping me to crack the eggs for our egg and cheese sandwich breakfast.
He did a terrific job and the backwards red Lightning McQueen hat just made him that much more handsome!!
This has been a great time for me because I have been able to have some great conversations with the children while preparing meals. It's been wonderful to be able to have these moments and I plan to continue this as long as I am able!! Oh, and this counts as school-Home Ec. right?!! Don't you just love that?!!
