What do you think I am going to write about? Am I going to share a wonderful, hearty soup recipe?
Um no. I am afraid not.
I want to write about feeding other people soup. The thought of writing this post came to me as I struggled to feed two toddlers soup at the same time.
How was I going to do it? Position is key. I firmly planted my feet shoulder width apart in between the two high chairs. I fed one spoonful to each baby but by the time I turned to face the other one…the first one was crying. I had to move faster. I remained in position. I then started to swivel (very similar to passing a medicine ball to a friend at the gym). Max. Emma. Max. Emma. Okay we are in business!
My preschooler from across the table says “Mom I need HELP!”.
Me: “I am kinda busy (quite close to breaking a sweat)”.
Preschooler: “But MOOOOOOOOOOOM I can’t scoop the bottom”
Me: “Okay”. I move him closer to the babies and add him into the rotation (which he thinks is hilarious but I do not).
I look down at the soup in front of ME. It is cold. Silently, I swear to not serve soup ever again especially if I am alone because feeding soup to four people at one time is well…not relaxing.
Have a great weekend!
