It’s Thursday tomorrow and that means I need to prepare school lunches for both kids. I used to be the mom who wanted to make all her kids lunches – until my son became so picky that food was coming back untouched.
Thank goodness for hot lunches at school. Even though it costs some money, it saves my sanity. Besides, my son’s school has strict dietary rules. Kosher and Pareve. No meat. No nuts. Just dairy, eggs and fish pretty much. Michael and I have had this talk that it all leads to a carb heavy diet. What kid can eat eggs and tuna and cheese everyday for lunch? So it boils down to pasta and pizza really.
So tonight, I’m making Potatoe Pirogies from scratch. It’s from the Food Network. I’ve been feeling brave about working with dough lately and I thought, why not?
I’m also home with all three kids tonight as Michael had to deal with the paperwork for the new car switch. We got a Mazda CX-9. The back seat was just too crowded for all three kids and so the two older ones end up fighting and bickering because they’re in each other’s faces. Plus the baby likes a quiet car ride.
Tonight also happens to be the 2nd night Willow sleeps sans swaddle. Last night she was also sans swaddle but in our bed. Tonight she’s in her own crib. I’m on my toes the entire time as every time she moves it turns on the monitor and I’m ready to go to her, expecting het to cry. So far, she’s done it twice and not woken herself up. Phew.
