cooking with a toddler

so i'm new to this whole blogging thing, but kc and jill--i will give it a try :) i love reading some of the blogs by other girlfriends on facebook. it's so fun to see an inside look into their lives!

i was debating on what to start with.  as i started creating my blog the other day, it was right before supper.  as i started supper, i was quickly reminded of how it usually goes. 

before tag, it was usually something as my sign says, "happy". no interruptions..time to sit around while things are in the oven or boiling was relaxing to me. but now, it starts out about like this..

so i take a second to give him some of my time and tell him that mommy is cooking supper. and find something to keep him occupied..usually FOOD! this child can eat, and i'm not sure where he puts it :)

as we go through life, things are not always easy and we have to make adjustments. i often think sometimes when i get stressed out about being home--about ready to pull my hair out because i just need a break that my life would be SO different without tag. and it makes me appreciate every second with him whether happy or difficult.

so i have come to find that cooking with a toddler is a lot harder than i thought it would be, but what fun would it be without a little challenge?? and somehow, it seems to get cooked, and everyone is happy :)
