Ok since this is a blog about my family and my children, I believe it is time to confess something:
When I get sick, and feel like death is upon me: I let my kids watch the TV with me.
There I said it. It is true. And I have created some funny obsessions as you will see.
We don’t watch TV in our household with our kids on the regular. Darren and I try as hard as we can to have limited amounts of electronics in our day-to-day lives with the kids. However, when I can barely move and all I want to do is lay on the couch, I can only read through so many books without wanting to cry out in sick pain. SO I did it, I turned on the TV and now Madeline has a FAVORITE, FAVORITE, FAVORITE show:
YUP! The Pioneer Woman! We watch the Food Network when I am sick. I confess it is true!
They say confession is good for the soul.
My favorite phrases I want to remember while watching The Pioneer Woman, is Madeline will ALWAYS say, “Momma you got to watch this so we can make it!” And if I turn away for one second, “Momma you will miss it!” And if she thinks I am not paying attention, “1 cup of broth, 1 tablespoon of salt,” yes she will make sure I am learning how to make this recipe. My favorite is when we are watching and she will ask me each time an ingredient is mentioned, “Do we have that?” and if we don’t she says, “put it on the list.” I have created a lil mini me cute monster!
“Welcome to my frontier!”
