Parents Seem to Overthink so Much
I must admit, I am guilty from time to time of feeling overwhelmed and wondering…
I used to have a tradition that every Friday we would make pizza or at least have pizza for dinner. I really miss this tradition, but while money is tight for now with the new home purchase, we will attempt to do our best to make it a once a month event or maybe twice a month for now.
I purchased pizza crust from Market Basket, pizza sauce, shredded cheese and some pepperoni slices earlier in the day. I set up the crusts on pan as well as sauce and cheese in two bowls so that the boys could have space to create their own pizzas; one cheese pizza and one pepperoni pizza.
I had to encourage my seven year old son to do more on his own, lately his confidence has been going downhill a bit but that’s just simply due to medication changes. I worked to encourage him to put his own cheese and pepperoni on so he could be proud of his creation.
We had a great time together. The boys were enjoying the fact that they could make their own dinner.
K-man was super proud of his “cheesiest ever pizza” creation.
Aj was super proud of his “pepperoni-est pizza ever” creation.
We popped the pizzas in the oven for about ten minutes…
And then we ate, together as a family.
