Costco Healthy Grocery Haul

Here's my Costco Canada  grocery haul this week!  I picked up a few basics (fruit, veg, Turkey, bread), a few treats for the kiddos (Chicago Mix, croissants) and found a few new low-point treats for me to try. High protein bread (2 personal points for me but not gluten-free so this will be an in-moderation food) and a cauliflower crust kit (4 personal points for me).  I’ll round off this shop with a small haul at another grocery store this weekend, and then I’m already for some batch cooking this weekend.  Now that the kids are back to sports in the evenings I need quick grab-and-go freezer meals: chilli, soup, homemade sauce for pasta etc.  What are some of your favourite  #wwfoodfinds ?

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
