So exciting, right? Wrong.
I have to go grocery shopping today which is usually not a huge deal for most. However, when you have five, yes five growing kids that eat everything in the pantry within minutes of getting home from school it's a huge chore that I don't look forward to.
Today I will go for my monthly grocery shopping which will take about $950. That sounds like a lot but when you have five, it isn't. This is just the amount I will probably spend today and then have to go back and forth throughout the week to get things here and there .
I cook dinner every single night for my kids. I rarely just make like a frozen pizza or something so each and every night is at least 3 courses, which in my world is not that much when there is a whole bunch of little bellies at the table.
I cook because that is a way for all of us to hang out each night. No matter how hectic the day is, nothing better than sitting down and listening to the stresses of a 10 yr old girl. How much she has on her shoulders, how much she has to worry about..etc . Then my sons who have a lot of stress over which toy they want to play with or worries about what's for snack as they are eating is fun to listen to too.
All kidding aside, I look forward to the time when we all get together at night to talk.
I remember growing up that my Grandma cooked every night too, so it's just how I do things.
I hate shopping for the food though.
I am procrastinating today, thus the blog.
