There arent many requirements. So, if you are like me (and I secretly hope you are so I dont have to feel bad for not being super woman) you might enjoy this new series. how to become mom of the year.
My kids are the pickiest eaters on the face of the earth. Is this my fault? Probably, everything is "mom's fault" right? Does it drive me nuts? Yes! That saying that old people use (insert nasty, condescending, and sarcastic tone of voice): "When my kids were little they ate what I cooked or went hungry" Fantastic. I am soooo happy for you. Honestly, when I hear that. ugh. I HATE hearing those words. BAHH! I have an extremely demanding job. Would I love to be a SAHM?? More. than. ANYTHING. but the reality is I have to work and I spend about 2-3 hours per day with my kids. I choose not to battle over dinner (most of the time) My son?? I am lucky if he eats anything but peanut butter and jelly. I bet the kid eats 15-20 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a week. ugh. HOWEVER! He has decided he likes "stove pipes" <-- what we call rigatoni with ragu brand sauce. Yes, sauce from a jar. Noodles from a box. Sometimes that is just how I roll.
So, step one to becoming mom of the year: Make Stove Pipes. Watch child ACTUALLY eat.
|please note: this was my plate, said son will not eat cheese. there is something seriously wrong with my child.|
Looks fantastic, right? (you are playing along arent you? Oh good. I was hoping you were still with me)
In case you were wondering I made this by cooking the rigationi
I would like to say I served this with a salad or SOME form of vegetable but. well. yeah. there are tomatoes in the sauce - I hope. ?? You know what? My kids were thrilled. They ate. And we got to have some fun before bed. That is my definition of mom of the year.
