-With them or not with them ?-

The other day, a lady at the park was complaining about the holidays and how she found it difficult to entertain her children, asking about ideas. Well, you know, I might have one or two activities for you, but the best for us is to do the thing that we want and let the children join in, and yes, it will get messy. But even with the cleaning, they will help! Yes, it will take you about 2 hours to make that tart, but you wanted to keep them busy no? 😉

Mes chères lectrices francophones, voulez-vous que je continue à traduire en français ?

Les mains dans la farineLa confiture de fraisesLes mains dans la vaisselle

But last night, while the children were asleep, I made a cake…alone…. just by myself…without helpers around….without questions to answer…just with my music, calm and absolutely no flour or sugar on the floor! Oh that was so fast! Dear Sanity, I love you!

  1. I don’t know whether this is correct, but I’ll give it a try anyhow:
    Je crois qu’il serait très agréable si vous continuez avec les traductions françaises! Je comprends le français écrit bien maintenant et j’aime lire en français. Si je lis un peu de français chaque jour j’apprends plus. Vous êtes un bon prof!

    May be the lady’s problem was that she ‘entertained’ the kids and offered them things to do on a platter, rather than letting them discover things themselves. I used to say: “Oh, I have some WORK for you to do!” and they were very quick to find something else to keep them busy and entertained.

    But, I understand what you mean by making a cake alone!
