Dear Diary, Before I became a mom, I rarely hosted holidays at my house. In the past decade, I made Thanksgiving dinner twice and a Christmas brunch once. I can cook. I just don’t like to cook, well unless the food’s An you know what? I actually enjoy it! I know I have a long way to go before anyone compares me to Martha. But being a mom makes me do things outside of my comfort level, which includes crafting! To make sure I have fun making memories and making artwork, I made it simple. I bought a pack of foam hearts, several sheets of stickers and markers. The $5 investment put a smile on my daughter’s face, which was priceless. The food also made everyone happy. I made something I never heard of until last week–Walking Tacos. My daughter asked if we could create a taco bar. So we bought every ingredient that would be yummy on a taco–lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, corn, sour cream, salsa and avocados. The kids then scooped the meat and toppings into snack bags (Doritos or Fritos). The day ended with my stomach and heart full. I never felt this type of love until I became a mom. Yes, I cooked for guys I dated, but it was mostly out of an obligation. Something I had to do. Not something I really wanted to do. It wasn’t because I was selfish–as mentioned, I wasn’t really a cook. I’ve since taken baby steps and began to build my house into a home, one taco party at a time! Hey DFTM Fam–How are you stretching beyond your comfort level?
