Pizza!! Pizza!! Pizza!! I could live on Pizza!
The boys and I decided to have a “Pizza Party” this week, so naturally a really great pizza sauce was the first place to start.
We made the sauce, prepared the dough and chose some toppings. Personally, I am a margarita girl myself but I can’t deny the rest of the family a slightly more interesting choice, so I gave them the option to go wild with theirs.
On went the music and the pizza party began!
As Bam Bam and I danced around the kitchen, rolled out the dough and spread on the sauce, nugget watched intently from the floor, throwing his arms up and gently bouncing to the rhythm. I imagined the day the boys will bring their friends home from school for sleepovers and we can throw more amazing pizza parties without the need to pick up the phone and order from the local takeaway.
Homemade pizza parties are soooo much better! I really hope their future friends agree!
I am totally not wishing the time away but it did give me something to look forward to when my little boys aren’t so little anymore. I may have to leave the dancing out of this future vision of mine. I really don’t want to be the perpetrator of the dreaded “mum dance”! I am one of many who wish to be thought of as a cool mum by our teenagers, despite knowing this is almost completely unobtainable! No matter how “cool” you think you are, teenagers will always be “cooler”… It’s simply an unwritten law of growing up!
