I made them dinner last night even though their dad wasn’t coming home to eat. Typically on those days, I let them fend for themselves or throw together leftovers.
Making dinner was relatively easy as I had pizza dough in the fridge, a foresight from two days ago to double the recipe. I am the queen of recipe-doubling! Ask me how many packages of ready-to-eat Mexican beef, pasta sauces, or meatballs I have in my freezer. 🙂
While I rolled out the dough I made them sweep, vacuum and de-clutter the entire open concept area around me.

My younger child is 11.
She is so full of love, and expresses this love in everyday life. Constantly. Not a day goes by when she doesn’t mention, or show it to me.
Even when she’s mad at me. Which is often enough…she’s a tween after all. 🙂
She expresses her love for those whom she loves with her words, her affection, her creativity.
I have to be extremely on guard with my cynical attitude on this topic to not destroy it for her.
Take this morning.

Yesterday we went out for dinner in the city’s east end. I even put on high (er) heeled shoes and earrings. 😊
