So making dinner, writing a letter, sorting laundry, or really anything that isn't staring right at the children usually means something is bound to happen.
Like emptying the entire silverware drawer all the while munching on a carrot. Nothing makes you feel better about making a home cooked meal then going on to clean all of your dishes before you can eat. So if you come to my home to share in a meal and your spoon has some carrot droll on it, please don't judge. You are getting a home cooked meal after all.
