When you’re a busy working (boo-hoo) mum like me, you’ll use anything to occupy your kids’ time without resorting to unhealthy distractions, such as plonking them in front of a tv watching the Wiggles. Not that I mind the Wiggles actually. Goofy as they look, they do have nice singing voices and I catch myself singing Cold Spaghetti often.
The latest activity fad of the twins’ is banging around with the pots and pans. Nothing new for mums in kitchens around the world, but still I am surprised at the pure absorption of the little bears’ concentration when engrossed in their musical cookware orchestra.
As long as no one loses an eye in the process, I’m all for the 20 or so minutes I get to prepare dinner in peace… okay wait, I take that back. Perhaps not in peace with regards to silence, but definitely peace in regards to not having to bend down to pick one or both twins up every other second.
