I wish I had them!
What’s for tea? When’s it ready? Is it still warm?
I wish I had the inspiration for the ‘what’, the crystal ball for ‘when’ &…. OK, I’m not really too bothered if it’s still warm! Tea being made & being edible is enough for me!
The kids are fed, I’m fed, so sorry hubby darling but you’ll just have to warm it up!
Today’s meal time passed without too much drama – apart from my 3 year old deciding that he would become an orchestra conductor with his fork, resulting in cottage pie being flung around the kitchen! So a pretty standard meal time for us!
More teatime antics produces more questions – to which I don’t have the answers!
Why do they do this?? Why can’t they just sit & eat a meal without flinging it around the room or sticking their fingers in it & wiping it in their hair? At best, they just feed it to the dog! Needless to say the dog is quite happy about it but I’m not when I turn around to see him licking his lips & my 2 cheeky children sat grinning at me!
Next job – make something else to eat to make sure they don’t go to bed hungry. Obviously this becomes a completely unhealthy, hardly nutritious snack. But if they go to bed full & happy then I’m happy!
As for Answers – I still don’t have any. I ask my Mum questions all the time – she has the answers to everything!
Then it dawns on me – my Mum didn’t have the answers all those years ago. She’s worked hard… very hard (I can vouch for that!) at keeping us fed & watered.. continuously for nearly 25 years. Ok ok… maybe I should’ve gone sooner but she’s so good at being a Mum why would I want to leave??
I just live in the hope that I’ll be as good as she is one day & FINALLY have all, OK maybe not all, but I’ll settle for some of the answers!
