APRIL 18, 2020. — it was bake a cheesecake kind of day! 💕 Still in quatrain mode..ugh. But this was sooo much fun because I got to watch Wyll (hubby) take the lead while he assisted our children with making a successful strawberry cheesecake and as for me, I just took a few pics. Hehe. This was definitely a great way to bond with the family but also a great way to teach the children about LISTENING, paying ATTENTION to details and FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS. Starting with the gram cracker crumbs and melting butter, to mixing heavy whip cream, sour cream and baking it all together. The kitchen was a mess but it was complete. I told the kids that life can be a beautiful mess and in order to take control of the things that we can, we must LISTEN to our intuition, pay ATTENTION to the details that cause our lives to be challenging but mostly importantly...put some INSTRUCTIONS together for yourself. Depending on what those instructions are could help you eliminate certain problems. In reaction to this, my kids said to me “whoaaa mom, good example”. Oh and the cheesecake was delicious and we enjoyed it. Just like we are enjoying life. I think it’s safe to say my work here is done...well not really! Lol. I’ve also attached an easy recipe that we used from Food Network in case you’d like to try it. See below!
Today I made this bowl with tri-color quinoa, chick peas (cooked in tomato sauce), cherry tomatoes and chicken links. The tomato sauce does not have any salt. I decided to add chili powder into the tomato sauce with a pinch of garlic salt, parsley flakes and it was very tasty. 😋 Here are a few steps on how to make this bowl.
MARCH 30, 2020 . . . the first day of online school. Not too bad for a Monday. The kids normally wake up at 6:15 in the morning, moving slow as molasses. Then, I start building up an attitude with frustration as I’m rushing them to get ready. But this time hubby and I working from home too. We get to have a mimosa while working too! I’m sure you can see why its not so bad for a Monday, lol. I’m pleased to know that my kids teachers are well prepared and move pretty quickly to upload lessons online.
ALL HATES OFF TO THEM! Jeremiah (my son) is in fourth grade...do you think they’ll cut him some slack? Nope, he still has a tone of work to do, even online. Fourth grade is a BIG DEAL people, smh. As you can see, he clearly doesn’t want to be bothered. He’s focused. Leilani (my daughter), her teacher makes the class do something called, Morning Movement. Before they get to work, they move around, stretch, and open their minds to start the day. What a thoughtful thing to do with second graders.
