Some nights, I really want to be a good mama and prepare a healthy dinner for my kids. They're fairly good eaters, but they are still pickier than I would hope them to be.
So, on these nights when I'm a single mom and I just don't have the fight in me, I think about making vegetables to go with whatever we're having. Sometimes I go so far as to get the veggies out and chopped. Then, I wonder why I'm going to all this work to have them thrown into the trash instead of bellies. So, I put them back and try again on a night where I do have the energy for this fight - or dad is home.
