Woo hoo?

I am a pretty positive person.  When I have a problem, I try to focus on finding a solution.  I am eager to try new things, and I go into those things with a good outlook.  I try to share this energy and optimism with my family. 

It isn’t working. 

I live in a house with two teenagers, and at the risk of reinforcing a stereo-type, teenagers and notorious for their level of poo-pooing anything their parents’ get excited about.   Like for example; I have started a job that requires me to work later in the evenings than we are all used to.  My kids are old enough to start cooking.  So I asked them to come up with a list of 5 things that we eat that they would like to learn how to cook.  I would make menus and make sure that all the ingredients they needed were in the house.  They each came up with 3 things, one of my daughter’s being mushroom soup.  From a can.  C’MON GUYS!!!  Let’s think bigger than that!  This is your chance to shine!  Mushroom soup.  Psh.

So new plan.  I made them a list of things that they could make and they are going to choose.  Then I will make a menu and shopping list.  Because I am NOT eating grilled cheese sandwiches, mushroom soup, and Kraft Dinner for supper for the next 10 months!
