StepKids & Omelets

Usually on the weekends it is a bit of a juggling act between the kids’ extra curricular activities and my husband’s unpredictable work schedule. However, by some miracle this weekend worked out perfectly! We managed to work in a basketball game, a barbecue with friends at the park, and a family workout at the gym.

One of my favorite things about being a StepMother is getting to teach my kids something new. I especially like teaching them “life skills” that they will be able to use as adults. Recently I got the chance to do just that.

I’m not exactly sure where it came from, but out of the blue Tanner, my 13 almost 14 year old boy, asked me if I would teach him to make an omelet. Oh, how my heart swelled! I love cooking, I love teaching, and I love my kids!

So we decided I would make one first to show him and then he would make one. Of course as soon as Maddie, my 12 year old girl, heard the butter hit the pan, she was over our shoulders wanting to learn too. After Tanner and I each made one, Maddie decided to try her hand at it. They both did great!

I have created 2 little omelet making monsters 🙂
