I'm having one of those weeks where parenting is kicking my butt. My husband worked all weekend, so today I'm on day 9 of looking after these
Anyways, I thought today I would post a couple of my tiny parenting successes in hope of reminding myself that I am not always a stay-at-home-failure.
First up, my toddlers new favourite lunch. She asks for it everyday, and almost always eats it all up, despite the fact that it is made out of different things every time. We call it "Happy Face Lunch". When I was little my favourite meal was "Things On a Plate". I thought it was a proper meal like "Lasagna". It took me years to figure out my mum was just making a meal out of whatever was in the fridge ; )
I've just taken "Things on a Plate" and jazzed it up a little.
Next up is my back up strategy for Monkey's school lunches. The school's nut free policy really hampers our sandwich style. I try to send him was a lot of leftovers but every now and then I get stuck with nothing to send. Luckily, Monkey's school has a microwave so I keep a back up of pasta meals in the freezer for him. I make big batches and freeze them in muffin tins and then pop them into ziploc bags. Two to three frozen pucks and ta-da! Instant lunch.
Well that's pretty much all I've got today. Hopefully, I'll be able to come up with some more positive Mummy Moments soon.
