I should have done this a looooong time ago. But the kids grow so fast, too fast for me to keep up with changing their responsibilities.
I finally announced that one of the kids would be responsible for providing lunch every day at 12:30. Prairie jumped at the chance. The very next day, she laid out a lunch buffet and called us all for lunch. She even wore her long-forgotten apron.
We have leftovers —– black bean and chicken soup, butternut squash . . . . .
mixed nuts, cheddar cheese, not sweetened tea, sour cream . . . . . . .
water (COLD), and thawed blueberries.
She even put on shoes for the occasion.
Albeit, they were not HER shoes. These shoes were in a bag with other shoes in my pantry, to go back to my sister. Prairie can not resist a bag of new-to-her shoes. She is such girly-girl, but with an uncommon fashion sense.
Now, she just needs practice sweeping the floor.
