Today I was so frustrated with making food for C. We're preparing to go out of town for the weekend and it's a chore in itself to get everything ready for him and remember to bring enough stuff.
HOWEVER -I then thought about my nephew (who we are going to visit) and his eating habits. I am so thankful that I am putting in the time and love to prepare good food for both my children. My nephew is 5 and is so sweet - but such a hard boy to feed. Only plain noodles (only one shape, too), only strawberries, and only mac and cheese (Kraft, not homemade). There are a few other things he'll eat but not much. It stuns my SIL that my 3 yr old eats whatever we do and will try most anything once. I'm sure it's because of our attitude toward food in my home and the blood/sweat/and tears I put in to making her food as a baby!
So, just when I was ready to give up I had a sudden burst of energy. That's not to say we don't have a couple of convenient things around the house, but overall it feels so good to be starting on the right food (even if it makes me cranky sometimes!).
Oh, and the carrot fritters that were a huge hit a few weeks ago have become projectile objects this week. So much for that idea. GRR.
