One of the ways this Momma 2 Many makes her life easier is super simple:
The kiddos eat outside whenever possible!
Yup, so tonight we had a beef stroganoff dish. Not exactly paper plate fare, eh? Yet with some simple Tupperware bowls, cups and a few camping chairs, the kids had a nice dinner in the garage! They also ate their lunch outside on the porch this afternoon. When Dean isn't home for a meal, this is my plan - they eat OUTSIDE!! Crumbs are not on my floor. Spills are not stressful. Kitchen clean-up is a breeze!
I even put Micah up in the doorway to the garage tonight for his diner ~ he was a bouncing-maniac!
Yes, we still have family dinners where we all sit around the dining room table - but we also have dinner outside all together sometimes too! Sometimes it's around the fire pit, sometimes it's in the front yard!
And it seems they have put together a "Variety Show" of sorts together for these meals. One person at a time stands in front of the others and performs.
Could be a song. A dance. A few jokes. It's HILARIOUS!!
And completely heartwarming~
