Quality Time

There are million things that need to be done everyday, okay maybe not a million. If you're a stay-at-home parent though, you know what I'm talking about. There are always chores like laundry, dishes, cleaning, errands to be run, bills to pay, kids to taxi, etc...I am a guilty of trying to get all of that done at the expense of my kids some days. Today I have a sick kid at home, a sick husband resting at home when he can, a mountain of laundry to be folded and put away, and a house that needs to be disenfected. My husband, in his best pathetic voice, asked me to make some apple banana muffins when he spied the ripe bananas on the counter. I meant to make it a couple days ago, but didn't find the time. And really, today I have other things that need my attention, namely catching up on school work. As I started preparing to make the batter for the muffins, I asked Katherine if she wanted to help me. She couldn't wait to start. As the youngest of four, she often takes a backseat to her sisters as I take them from one activity to another. So today we had some fun together making muffins and jello jigglers. She learned an important lesson today too...never lick the spoon and put it back in the batter!! Good thing I caught her before it went back in. Never a dull moment!
