“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review, a gift code to giveaway, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
No matter how hard I try, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen between all the meals, prepping, cooking, and cleaning up. My little guys like to follow along with me and help out when they can. We create numerous special family moments each day right in the kitchen.
During the day when my kids eat, I typically spend that time cleaning the kitchen and doing dishes. Since they are all sitting down being quiet, I can get it all done quickly. However, when it comes to dinner time, I always make sure the whole family eats together. If my husband is slightly late from work, we wait for him. This is something I want to make sure goes unchanged in the years to come. I think it is important to sit together, talk about our day, and just spend that time together.
When I am prepping for meals, we all gather around the island with my three sons squeezed together enjoying the family time. They are either helping me out or just laughing and enjoying a small snack. Sometimes they will help me count, gather, or mix ingredients. They are more than happy just to help Mommy (or Daddy) out in kitchen.
These times are precious to me. They bring us all together in a central location in our home. I will do everything I can to keep it that way as my kids get older.
Moments like the above happen throughout each day. Seriously, can you tell my one year old cracks himself up? They are all laughing and having a good time enjoying a snack while I made our list for the trip to the store. Love those smiles.
Welch’s knows how special family moments like these are. They have launched a new movement called “Share What’s Good” that focuses on sharing these amazing moments that occur every day.
To join in, all you have to do is post your everyday moments on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #sharewhatsgood. When you do, it will show up on the feed on the Sharewhatsgood website. That site also includes family fun ideas and recipes.
