Raising Kids: What they don’t tell you!
For my children’s tell-all, one chapter will detail how their mother’s idea of cooking dinner is well, lacking; that their mother’s idea of cooking is to: A. Burns it (This really is not done on purpose). B. To order pizza. C. Make pancakes.
Schools should not serve pizza. Why? Because pizza is an easy, quick and tasty choice for undomestic moms everywhere. Pizza remains our meal of choice. That is besides pancakes for dinner, which I tried to convince my kids was actually a dinner meal and not breakfast. But back to pizza for a minute. My kids actually gave me a cease and desist on ordering pizza. “Mom, we have pizza every day at school. Do we have to have it at home too?” Yes. Yes you do…
I once strolled into the hallway and had to duck-and-cover because my sons were having a coin toss. No, not a coin toss like at a county fair where you merrily toss coins hoping to land on a plate in exchange for a stuffed animal or small trinket. No, I’m talking about pennies flying through the air like Major League baseball pitches. It’s times like these, when a mother picks up the phone and calls her best friend, or her sister, or a fellow mom, or someone who will understand and listen.
