“How about tomorrow” I am beginning to understand how parents can be so easily manipulated by their cute little critter children. This has become the phrase of the week, and little toddler just thinks that anything he doesn’t want to do can be put off until tomorrow. I say, “Say bye to Miss Stacey”, “Let’s go sit on the potty”, “Let’s finish up our dinner so we can play” Response:
“Maybe we’ll do that tomorrow” ** AND he says it in the sweetest little voice too!
As a parent, that is totally something I would like to say all the time too. Putting off cooking dinner, doing laundry, picking up 9,000 toys — Maybe tomorrow. If you are a softy and don’t realize that he is so kindly trying to pull one over on you I could see how kids can win. But we are overcoming the battle one day at a time.This morning after breakfast we just hung out at home. While he played, I did some food prep for dinner. I cut up the peppers, onions and cooked them along side the ground beef, beans and tomatoes. The original recipe called for a variety of spices that sounded similar to my taco seasoning recipe, so I just used that instead. My filling for my Enchilada Pie was done so all I needed to do during nap time was assemble it in the slow cooker. Let me tell you, dream dinner, coming right up.
Today at lunch, I asked him what he likes to do most with Mommy, and he said make crafts. So I set on a quest today to come up with some new craft ideas. We have some things in the making that you will see on the blog in the next coming weeks. But hearing his little responses to real life questions just kills me to know he is growing up. He is definitely my little pal, and I love hanging out with him everyday.
After he went down for nap, my first priority is always to eat my lunch and clean up from his lunch. Then, I assembled this delicious Enchilada Pie in the slow cooker. Set it on LOW for 4 hours and my dinner assembly was finished. We could go out and about this afternoon and I didn’t have to worry about coming back home to cook dinner. AWESOME!!!
Except for the fact that the little toddler who usually sleeps for a max of one and a half hours for nap slept for THREE AND A HALF HOURS. Granted I got to get some stuff done at home. The afternoon of getting out and about was now out of the question. We had to RUN quickly to the grocery store to get a few things that I needed. This is the mom life, we should have just went to the store tomorrow instead. ENJOY!
