My 3yo girl is picky picky picky. She’s a pale-faced, sweet-toothed, carb-loving strong-willed cookie. Before meals she prays, “Dear God, help this to be a Happy Meal” – the whole “turn this water into wine” sentiment. I’m obviously doing something wrong.
I have a hate-hate relationship with my kitchen. There is absolutely nothing in there that I want to cook. I menu-plan and slave away anyway because I’m a mom, you know? It’s all about blessing my family? And then my (healthy) food doesn’t get eaten. So I eat it and get fat(ter). And I throw away what would solve a continent’s food shortage crisis. And I have a slew of dirty dishes afterwards.
So – how do I get Esmé involved in the kitchen? Does she eat what she makes? Head on over to Preschool in the Kitchen over at The Homeschool Village today – and if y’all have any advice or sympathy, leave a comment!
