Some days I think that pretty much sums up parenthood. 22 years and 9 months ago, I began my journey in parenthood. There have been many ups and downs, highs and lows but I have to say it has never, ever been boring.
Feeding my ‘spawn’ has been challenging. I love to cook but have managed to have 2 kids with simpler tastes. Hamburgers, grilled cheese, chicken nuggets, mac and cheese and tortellini are their foods of choice. I have tried and tried again to get them to widen their food tastes. I always have felt like I did something ‘wrong’ as a parent because I could not get them to eat other foods. I am a culinary school graduate; I can cook anything but nothing they like to eat.
So, let them eat chicken nuggets for breakfast and peanut butter and jelly every single day of their life because… as was stated earlier “At the end of the day, if they don’t starve or get scurvy, you’re doing fine”. Lighten up moms and dads and give yourself a break. There will be many more things to stress about in your kid’s futures.
Ps – Here’s a little site with easy to make pull apart bread ideas. I have been making a different one each night and even my spawn have enjoyed a few of them. I use pop and fresh biscuit dough to make it simple and quick too.
