What a weekend

in Cooking, jordan, Shopping, Tantrums

It was quite a busy weekend — Busy because I really wanted to spend time with the kids and have fun. In between the fun, I had many interesting challenges with Jordan. The battle over shoes, getting dressed and putting on the seatbelt continued.

It is tiring and at some points, I have to just get her dressed, get her shoes on and put her seatbelt on. I look forward to bringing in more concepts of logic for Jordan. I think she can make decisions with logic when she wants to — But in most cases, she just gets so upset that I’m making her do something that she didn’t choose to do, there’s no chance in reaching her. Typical two year old stuff.

Jordan was a trooper when I helped coach Cam’s t-ball team. Randy is out of town so I had some extra responsibility in helping keep the practice in motion. It was tricky keeping Jordan out of the parking lot AND Cam focused on the ball.

After practice and a challenging trip to the grocery store, both kids helped me cook egg burritos for dinner. Cam and Jordan helped me crack the eggs – something I’d never done with them before. Cam was super careful with the eggs. Jordan knocked the poopy out of the eggs. They both loved it. Most nights I’m rushing so fast to get dinner cooked that I don’t get the kids involved. It was kind of cool to let them help out even a bit.

twin power mommy has left a new comment on your post “What a weekend”:

I always LOVE having the girls help me out when i cook breakfast on sunday mornings. But on some sunday’s, i AM in too much of a hurry, because it’s like, 10:30 and we are all starving, so having two 6 year olds help out with breakfast is indeed more of a pain.
I want my kids to enjoy cooking. I never liked it until i was actually a mother and wife. Couldn’t cook for the first few years of marriage and wouldn’t even attempt it. I want my kids to know this stuff and feel confident when the time comes to be on their own.

On another note, i love that bubble machine jordan is holding. How cool is that?!
Anyway, hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
