Cooking Together

Confession: I'm a lazy cook and I get discouraged easily when things don't go the way I expected. Another excuse reason for not cooking "real food" everyday is that I simply have no time from the kids. I'm caught in the middle of a 4-year-old who loves to learn new things and getting more responsibility, and a 1,5-year-old who is... well, quite busy climbing all of the time. Most of the time I spend pulling her down from walls, curtains, tables and chairs. If I am desperate, I buckle her in her high chair for a minute so I can get something done, but that only means she will scream the whole time she's in it, since she hates being restrained (needless to say, we don't travel in the car with her very much either).

What encourages me to cook more, though, is Jonah, who is a wonderful helper. He made meatballs with me the other day, and at bed time as I asked for his high and low points of the day, for a high point he said without a doubt, "cooking with you mom!". These things are more important to kids than we think.
