To be honest, I am at a point where I’m not a fan of cooking. Though an avid Food Network watcher and fan, my days of slaving all day chopping, boiling and scooping have been cataloged away somewhere with fancy black and red lingerie in an unforgotten drawer.
I spend so much of my time trying to figure out how to introduce new flavors and foods to my kiddos on a regular basis this challenge seemed almost like my own personal hell invading my dream world of writing. I’ve spent days thinking about what to write along with putting it off as well. So why do it? Why do the challenge? Guess what? I didn’t do it.
I didn’t exactly do it per se. I didn’t literally introducing my kids to the taste of a new food but a taste of something different. A taste of life with no rules or schedules to be kept. The control freak let go and followed a different recipe for daily life achieving a different flavor … for at least 24 hours.
I let them feed Cheerios to fish (even though the sign may or may not have warned against that).
We looked at overpriced homes with breakables.
We ran through fountains in our clothes.
I didn’t check my Fitbit.
We ate on the dirt and grass.
I volunteered to bring baked goods to VBS on Wednesday … let’s just say they aren’t organic or made from scratch.
I let them stay up past bed time watching television in bed.
I let my oldest have a sleepover in my bed as we watched BattleBots.
Sometimes you just gotta sa.
I may have not followed the rules exactly but I nailed it on enjoying the here and now AND THAT is what the #ETHANproject is all about.
What’s your flavor??
