We were in the kitchen.
I was making rolls and the kids wanted to help.
The rolls were for a dinner party, so I didn't want the kids to help.
I was uptight, frustrated, and stressed.
Then, I noticed Matt and Lindsay had poured more flour on the counter
and were drawing pictures in the mess.
I thought it was cute, so I took a picture.
Then, Matt took a handful of flour, threw it right at me, and started to laugh.
I felt my blood pressure rising as I debated what to do or say to Matt (time-out, lecture, etc.)
But then, I grabbed a handful of flour, threw it back at him, and we both started to laugh.
We got in a BIG flour fight. It was fun. REALLY fun!
I was late to the party, I had to re-shower, and I had a really messy kitchen, but it was worth it!
And even though we will NOT be having a flour fight every time I make rolls,
it was good to calm down and relax.
