On to other mishmash. Tonight Ben let is slip that Dad is his favorite. I don't think he was trying to be discreet because it was during dinner so of course I overheard. I mentioned that I might be a little be hurt about this to which Ben responded, "I like you too Mommy, but Dad is just so awesome!" Boo Hoo. I guess it is just a good reminder that I have been a little bit too much of a taskmaster these days.
The trick is to remember to be silly... they love it when I am absurd and silly. You know what one of their favorite games with me is? I pretend like they are naughty little cats and they are not allowed in my kitchen. When the try to come into the kitchen I spritz them with a water bottle and growl "Get out of my kitchen." This game tends go on for quite some time. It is time to get out the water bottle.
Now to food. For dinner I made another meal from Cook's Country. For dinner I made Weeknight Spaghetti and Meatballs. I would give it about a 6 out of 10. I like a little bit more flavor in my sauce, but it was still pretty good. I liked that it was fast. The boys needed a little coaxing... but they loved the meatballs. Sam, who loves pasta, gobbled up every last bit.
