AN URBAN MAMA'S TAKE ON NURTURING HER FAMILY

Friday, January 30

popcorn & the joy of plenty



What was I thinking?! I started making popcorn while the kids were barely halfway through dinner (pancakes, loads of maple syrup, carrot sticks, I'm not very Martha after all...), as soon as they saw me dumping the freshly popped popcorn into bowls they urgently swept their dinner plates aside. You know how this story ends: they did not finish their dinner.

Anyhow, we had a blast eating popcorn in our igloo tent, drinking water from our canteen, taking turns pretending we were raccoons rubbing up against the tent, and making loon, owl and coyote sounds.


I'm grateful for a really productive week, for all the family and friends we got to play with, and the wisdom that comes from nearly four decades of life. What's keeping you smiling and grateful?
