I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and by a lot I mean all. This time of year it's worse, since I'm baking cookies, making party food, and homemade ravioli in addition to the regular day to day of feeding and cleaning up after everyone in the house. It was made clear to me just how much time I was spending when I heard Sonya making up her own words to, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" one day last week. In place of "a partridge in a pear tree", she sang,
"And one mommy cleaning up the kitchen!!"
Yeah. So. I guess when Christmas is over I should step out of the kitchen for a bit. Trust me, I'll be more than happy to do it!
