the success (or otherwise) of sultanas

February 6, 2007

From a toddler perspective a box of sultanas is a wonderful thing. It’s a toy that can be played with as well as a food. Sultanas can be scattered and fought over with siblings as well as eaten.

Success.

From a distracted mother’s point of view, especially when there are a few chores to be done, sultanas can also be a success. The silence is ear-splitting. No one is wrapped around her legs.

The proud hausfrau on the other hand is not so impressed. Squished sultanas on the carpet and half chewed ones in every crevice – not so fun.

I wonder if the few minutes silence is worth the cleaning of squishy fruit?
