Ready To Do Better!

I feed myself well. Maybe too well, judging by my scale. I love food - I love to make it, I love to eat it, and I love to try new things with it. So why do I find myself hauling out my Costco-sized bag of frozen chicken nuggets for Abby's dinner every night? Why do most of her lunches consist of a yogurt and a handful of carrots? Toddlers are hard - they like what they like, and it's easy to fall into the trap of just serving the same things, over and over again. When I muster up the enthusiasm to make something new and different with Abby, it's either demolished with gusto or regarded with disgust... and watching her turn up her button-nose at something I've slaved over is a little demoralizing. But with Celeste (and the blog!) to spur me on to do better, I'm ready. Ready to make Abby REAL food. Ready to expand her palate. Ready to show her that there is life beyond grilled cheese, peanut butter and jelly, dino nuggets, and Goldfish crackers.
