Every time my toddler slips into a grouchy mood, I hear myself remind him that he can choose to be happy and have fun or he can choose to be grouchy and have a bad time. It’s a choice.
I pull him into my lap and remind him of this a couple of times a week.
I hear myself say it, but I don’t know why it didn’t dawn on me earlier: this exact advice applies to my life as well.
Cooking is something I genuinely enjoy doing, but in the last few weeks, it has definitely felt like a chore.
Spending time in the kitchen is inevitable as a mom. I can choose. Am I going to have a good attitude about it, or am I going to be grouchy and have a bad time?
I have a 31 Challenge for myself: have fun in the kitchen every day in October. I will be posting the results on Instagram as I go! Use the hashtag #funinthekitchen to join in or follow along this month!
