Tell Me Thursday (4/30/09)

As I was going through Wordless Wednesday posts yesterday I came across Tell Me Thursdays. I love the idea of know the story behind the pictures, so…. I am going to share mine in hopes more people join in and talk about theirs.

I am a busy mom, out of the house by 6:30am at the VERY latest, usually 6am-ish and I do not return home until 3:45pm if I am lucky, usually around 5:30pm with soccer games and evening meetings. My baby girls stay home and are watched by some friends of the family.

After 9-11 hours without Mommy, my toddlers are frantic to cling themselves to my legs and give as many hugs and kisses as they can get out before I can unravel myself from them. I drop my bags and head to the kitchen to get dinner out of the way.

Last week I was having trouble cooking and wrestling the little ones from crawling all over me. So I came up with a new system. Baby girl gets put in her high chair with her dinner and some pretzels with peanut butter, two year old yells out. “I will get the chair” (Which sounds more like “Ah, ge chir”) which she drags over to the stove. She gets a wooden spoon and stands there expectantly. She is my kitchen helper….

However, I have created a monster.

Now, she must have the chair, when someone is washing dishes, or making a sandwich, or even just getting water. She has an addiction… So… that being said… I want one of … these… It would make my life soooo much easier!

But until then… I have Issa next to me… cooking, talking and creating memories with Mommy.

So sweet! Kelsie is the same way...She has to be in the kitchen with a chair, helping whatever it is I am preparing for dinner. She insists on stirring any and everything whether it needs it or not.

So cool! My children love to be in the kitchen with me!

A picture is worth a thousand words, so they say. What a great idea!
