Those are the words going through my head right now. “But I don’t want to make dinner.” And its happening in a really whiny tone. Of course I will feed them, But feeding the kids some cold cereal sure sounds like a not too bad idea.
It is not that I had a busy day or anything. It is actually the first day in a few weeks where I was able to just enjoy my day and quiet my mind of all the things that need to be done. I only had to take my daughter to piano lessons and the rest of the day I was able to just relax at home, visit with a friend, visit with my kids and enjoy one of the reasons I chose to homeschool, for the freedom and flexibility. I enjoyed allowing me to have some down time and just breathe in the day.
But now I need to get some chores done and make some dinner and I really do not feel like it. Dinner time is always one of those least favorite times. I am not sure why but I never really enjoyed trying to figure out things to make and my hubby was always so picky so that just made it hard to enjoy also. It has gotten better over the years but I get in a dinner rut sometimes.
There are times where we just don’t feel like doing something but we really need to. And dinner is one of those things so I will press on and make the family a nice meal. It is oh such a blink of an eye before they are all grown up and before I know it my oldest will be an adult in a few short months so I will stop the whining and I will be thankful that I get to feed my kids and that I am able.
It is all in the power of our minds, how will I choose to look at it.
I am thankful I get to whine and that I get to stop and I am thankful that I get to be a mom and some days are good and some are bad and with that I am happy.
