When Daddy's Away....

Hottie husband is away with the National Guard, again. This time it's only for a couple of weeks. You may be wondering how I do it all...three boys, a full time job, community involvement, baseball practices, Boy Scouts, laundry, cleaning, dinners...(enter halting screech)....yeah, about dinners...this is where I make it easy. You see, unlike my mommy dearest, I didn't inherit the gourmet cooking gene (okay, that's not entirely true...I can cook, I just choose not to cook). Most of the time hottie husband does the cooking, the rest of the time we eat out. So, when daddy's away...the kids and I have ‘Make Your Own Dinner Night!'

“KIDS! It’s make your own dinner night!”

They know the rules- eat anything you want. Waffles with peanut butter and syrup? Sure. Ice cream and chocolate fudge PopTarts? Uh- huh. Cereal by handfuls straight from the box? You betcha!

Thankfully my kids don't know about the Child Abuse & Neglect Hotline....yet.
