would you like it cold...or cold?

Being the mom means always eating cold food

as, of coarse, there are always 50 million mealtime emergencies to deal with.

In case you were wondering, cold toast sucks.


  1. that is my biggest frustration!!! the worst is when you husband is done eating , you haven started yet and you still have to be the one dealing with the emergency of the meal. I totally can't wait for the day when I get to eat a hot meal again!!

  2. I so know what you mean, Britt. Spence is a great dad and husband, but he has a one-track mind when it comes to dinnertime. Inevitably, I'm the one hopping up and down taking care of stuff. I remember my mom doing the same thing and I could never understand I do :P

  3. I soooooooo agree! If my food is hot, it's because I'm wolfing it down fast enought that it's hot but not tasting it. It usually burns me at that point. :)

  4. I've made a rule that my hubby has to take care of meal-time emergencies since he pretty much inhales his food and is done before I even get food on my plate. When I catch myself doing it instead I say "hey, I'm not doing this, you do it!" and sit back down.

    Also, after finally watching The Christmas Story for the first time two Christmases ago I was able to appreciate the dinner scene from the Mom's perspective, since then I have that scene in my head at every meal.
