Works For Me Wednesday
This is my first entry with Works for me Wednesday hosted here at We Are That Family, I hope I do it right!
What should I write this first one about? I think, teaching my children to cook. All 4 of my children are excellent cooks due to time we have spent together in the kitchen over the years. And, not only has that given me the peace of mind knowing that as they go out on their own, they can feed themselves without relying on convenience, but it has also allowed me a way to get close to my children without seeming "nosy". There is something about cooking together that naturally leads to conversation. If you only knew how many times I have heard "Mom, guess what happened today", as we were in front of the stove. It just seems easier for the kids to open up. Plus, now that they are older- they take over Dinner some nights and I get a night off ;o)
