1st Blog. Da da daaaaaam.
Can you feel the pressure of the first blog post? Sheesh. I’ve been putting this off for a long time. Don’t want to be all boring. Not sure which interest to start with...
Our gluten free life - not by choice. It’s not a fad diet for us. My 2 kids and I are Celiacs. We are now the high-maintenance folks. Why is everyone handing out food these days? When I was a kid we didn’t get food from non-relatives unless it was trick-or-treat night or a parade and they were throwing it at us. For the love of all that is sane, a lot of the kids out there are overweight, I don’t think they need another piece of candy or that cookie! Stop the madness!
Making stuff from scratch - it’s much more fun to talk about this in person especially if you have friends who don’t - I have 2 friends who are not “made from scratch” who give me disgusted looks when the subject comes up. Wait, I’m now high-maintenance AND annoying...hmmmmm
My snarky observations - gotta narrow that down. One to cover for sure are all the slow couples grocery shopping together. Since when is this a team activity? Do you really need to stand in front of the shelf and have a 5 minute discussion on which box to choose? Really? Do you really want his opinion? Why did you bring him with you? It’s mind-boggling. Go home and get out of my way, please.
My parenting - when I’m out in public with my kids, I try to start the errand off with clear expectations. I lean down and ask my kids, “What is your goal when we are at this store?” They answer, “For you to not be the loudest mom in the store.” Yes, sweethearts, that’s right. We don’t need to show all these nice people that side of me since you can’t stop walk-wrestling with your brother. Have you seen the walk-wrestle? If I stop to look at something they are able to progress to actual wrestling. Perhaps I should praise them for be able to do it on the go. Does it count as multitasking? That’s pretty good, considering they are boys, right?
So many subjects...My goal is to not be boring. Tune in next time....
