Lessons from the Wisest Kid #askwisestkid

Six months ago I got to introduce you to The Wisest Kid in the World much to my oldest sons surprise, it was not him. Six months later, it’s still winter, and we’re looking back at the wisdom gained from that wise kid.

 First up in the longest, coldest, snowiest winter ever, my own wisest kid would like it to be known that soup is a must. We ran out last week after five days of sick kids and missed school. We learned this weekend that if there is snow on the ground, their better be soup in the cabinet.


We’ve also reinvigorated our Update our Meals Challenge and tried some new recipes. The Wisest Kid has inspired us to work harder at getting the kids in the kitchen and involved with dinner. We’re going to start a Sunday tradition of letting the kids find a recipe and help prep it. We’re starting this weekend with the Mini Macaroni and Cheese Cups, with one request; the edition of bacon.

Most importantly The Wisest Kid has taught us to slow down, appreciate the clever and funny things are kids say, enjoy acting like a kid and most importantly spend time together. Which coincidentally Mother Nature seems to be in on too with this forever winter! If you need some inspiration to keep you and your kids from climbing the walls in the winter that never ends check out The Wisest Kids Inspiration for Inside Activities:
