“Don’t play with your food” is something we’ve all probably said 385,195,961 times as mothers. And while I’m all for supporting good table manners, some rules are meant to be broken. Enter: MojiMaker, a hands-on gadget that allows your kids to have fun with their food while also encouraging them to eat their fruits and vegetables. It’s a win-win, if you ask us!
“So we’re going to be THAT family?” my 14-year-old asked with a little smirk. “Yes. Yes, we absolutely are,” I smiled.
We were sitting around the dinner table – my three kiddos and I (If you can call them that at ages 24, 19 & 14) at one of the first family dinners we had eaten together in weeks. I was telling them of my new plans for more togetherness: Weekly family dinners and monthly family outings.
My children are growing up right before my eyes. I’m enjoying that this has made the day to day struggle of keeping them fed, clothed, and alive (let’s be honest) easier. I don’t think anyone would argue that taking care of a newborn, or keeping your house or toddler intact, is no easy feat. But, as these precious babies grow into older school age children, the weight of motherhood responsibility can, at times, also seem really daunting.
