Feeling a little irritated tonight. I hate meal planning. I hate grocery shopping. I used to like cooking but now since my kids always complain about what I make, well that's not fun anymore either. I told myself recently after reading an article that I was no longer going to be a "short order cook". I would make dinner, and everyone would eat it. Or they wouldn't eat. Period. And I've done pretty good the past few weeks. Sometimes, however, I realize my kids just aren't going to like all the things I like. And I can't expect them to. My kids hate most vegetables. They won't eat soups. They like simple meals - meat and potatoes (although only mashed potatoes), fruit and cheese. That's about it. And even though I try to get them to try new things, I know they're not going to like my burrito bowls. So I thought of them when I went to the store and got Buffalo wings. Jack likes hot wings. So why did both him and Cameron freak out when I put the wings on the table tonight? Jack complained about the smell, and swore they were not the same kind of wings he normally eats. He even held his nose through most of dinner. Cameron took a bite and spit it out. Real nice. So I might have lost my temper. And I might have yelled. And this is why I hate meal planning.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
