Sometimes in life, you just have to give in. You have plans to do one thing, and life has a very different idea of what should be going on. This was apparently a day when life wanted me to stay home and cook with Mini Chef.
He was making it quite clear that the one thing I wanted him to do was NOT at the top of his “to-do” list. We had to go somewhere, and he was adamantly against it. So much so, that he walked up to me coughing very dramatically and said to me in his little 3-year-old voice,
“I can’t go Mama. I have the sneezies, the hiccups and the bless you’s.”
To say I darn near fell down where I stood is an understatement. And needless to say, I relented. My very busy “to-do” list got put on hold for the day.
I mean, when a little munchkin comes up with that much drama, it’s hard to be the strict parent and make him do it anyway. So I buckled. Call me a wimp if you like, but sometimes that kid really does have me wrapped around his little finger. So we decided to stay home and try a recipe that a Facebook fan had suggested.
Man am I glad we did! These turned out great! In fact, I paired them with Clean Eating Sloppy Joe’s, and we had a really wonderful and relaxed dinner.
Oh, and those “sneezies, hiccups and bless yous” magically disappeared the moment we got into the kitchen. Imagine that.
