I have a new goal in life.
My goal is to make dinner.
Not just stir, measure, chop and simmer, but do so without someone climbing up my
yoga pants designer jeans while someone else knots my pony tail perfectly coiffed hair.
So I’ve started to break out the Pinterest activities right before I begin cooking dinner in hopes of
hypnotizing creatively engaging my children with a new activity, giving me a few quiet minutes to try new recipes that they will refuse to eat anyway for us to enjoy.
My first attempt was the race track created by The Mother Huddle.
I would rather you not look at her pictures before mine because she has fantastically creative details like parking spaces and a dashed line in the road.
There were kids climbing on my head. I did the best I could.
I enlisted the teenager to help tape the outline of a track,
gathered the appropriate parties at the start line,
and let them loose.
I cooked dinner to the echo of VROOMS
the twirl of tutus
and the occasional “Moooom, his toe is touching my knee.”
because no activity is THAT good.
