Weekend Adventures, Pre-teen Attitude and Meal Prep for the Week

Took the kids to Canada’s Wonderland last weekend on a whim, and took advantage of our season passes and the 19-degree fall weather. The day started off rocky with my pre-teen son being in a moooooood. But by the end, everyone pulled through and we finished the day strong with a few rides and funnel cakes!  We're excited to go back and experience Halloween Haunt in a few weeks! This coming week will be busy so I've pre-tracked some meals in my WW app to keep me on track.  A few things I prepped for easy grab-and-go meals: I made some WW Vegetable Soup. Baked some portobello mushrooms for a meatless main dish.  Made some hard-boiled eggs. Cooked some quinoa and chopped veggies to make some quick salads. Washed and chopped lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for easy meals and snacks. What's on your to-do list this week? On our favourite ride!

Homework Chronicles

Homework at our house is almost never quick, and it’s always painful. My daughter is in grade 2 and cries if she doesn’t get homework. My son, in grade 4, cries when he does get homework which unfortunately for him is like every fricken night.

It’s rare that I’m able to get both kids to sit down at the same time and do homework while I do the after-dinner cleanup…so you could imagine my surprise when I looked over and saw these two little hooligans side by side, not fighting, and helping each other with their homework.

I was swooning with love and affection.

Until.

Yup – I knew it was too good to be true.

Tyler: Mom can I watch tv?

Me: No, you’re not done your homework.

Tyler: It's ok, Adrianna said she would finish my homework because it’s just colouring and she can finish colouring my science title page.

HE LURED HER IN BECAUSE IT’S COLOURING SO IT’S LIKE HER FAVOURITE THING TO DO…OF COURSE, SHE’D SAY YES!

Needless to say, they were not too pleased with me for botching their plan…but I have to hand it to them for trying to work together to get what they want lol
