OK I raised my kids on Gold Fish crackers and KD - that's Kraft Dinner not K. D. Lang. Some say that if you have a child until the age of seven, you have them for life and I think that they must be right, because my 30-year-old still eats KD and my daughter at 20, bought herself a Gold Fish cracker carrier - Finn - this summer.
What can I say. I tried all the good stuff and they refused to eat - so I caved in early and gave them what they wanted!! Now The 19-year old doesn't eat either of these. But, he'll have eggs - any style, anytime or frozen pizza. I must have gone through a frozen pizza stage, which I can't remember because I was raising two kids who were 14 months apart, plus their older brother - busy time - who could remember anything :)
Anyway today on the theme of celebrating ordinary things - I am giving centre stage to Finn and linking you to one of my favourite commercials - the KD Gold Fish ad. The video comes pretty close to a definitive statement of the craziness of my family life then!!!
I'm not saying that there were times when I could have "eaten the kids" - but there were times when we had to come up for air through some thick yellow sludge.
Celebrate just getting through it. Put front and centre a small trophy like Finn, as a reminder that you achieved something phenomenal.
Have a great day!!!
