A friend and I were in a long buffet line at an event. We each had two little kids (plus ourselves) for which to make plates.
“Hmmmm? I muttered to the lady in front of us, how am I going to fix three (glass) plates and wrangle these two kids through the line without making a mess and a commotion.”She looked at me and calmly said, “Stack the plates and divide the food at the table.” I looked at her in awe and then whispered, “Brilliant, thanks!” She replied, “Mother of four.” (Thank you, Christina! Hope I remembered your name correctly.)
Anyway, I told my friend and we did that for our kids. Worked like a charm. How do you manage this kind of situation?
Seriously, this is the kind of stuff we should be telling each other. TheMommyhood.com can be our forum, so come off with your tips, people. Let’s help each other out.
Have a great holiday weekend!
