My main goal every day is that our family connects at least once throughout the day.
With a very active family, one son working and all 3 kids playing spring soccer, we don’t always get to sit down and eat dinner together in the evenings.
But when we do, the time is rich and sweet. To me, the sentimental Mama that I am, it’s like having a big piece of dark chocolate cake with rich, flakey chocolate pieces on top, when those moments happen. And dinner seems to be the time when we are most relaxed.
I know these years are precious and will be gone before we know it. So like this chocolate cake, I don’t want to miss out on a bite! At times I actually want to take a big BITE out of my kids. They are so yummy and wonderful - full of spirit and life.
This morning I made our traditional German Pancakes – and I added a few drops of green food coloring!
After all, we are an Irish family!
We indulged and went on our way for the day.
Connection in the morning, or connection at night – the most important thing for our family is that we do it.
Do you make it a point to connect with your entire family on a daily basis?
I've always made St. Patrick's Day fun. When the kids were little I added green to milk, pancakes, and eggs. This last Sunday I added green to the pan of Irish oatmeal that my friend Barb sent us!
We ate it with blueberries on top! YUM!
