I think I’ve found my secret weapon for getting through these hectic early mornings….
With two little ones, not only are our parties more on the tame side than they used to be, but we also have to come up with fun things for the kids to do, because if they aren’t busy having fun, I’m not going to be able to relax and have fun… and if I’m not having fun, my guests will feed off that and they won’t have any fun either.
Usually I plan ahead for the meals I know I’m going to make (and then share with you). This morning, out of the blue, my daughter asked for muffins for breakfast. Before I could take down two sips of my morning coffee, she was standing at my mixer spooning in sugar. That meant that not only did she want muffins, she wanted them right that very instant…. and if I didn’t get to making them she was going to take matters into her own hands….which also meant that I would spend the remainder of the day cleaning up the kitchen….which would be /WRETCHED/.
