I actually cooked a well-rounded meal last night:
turkey meatloaf, Israeli couscous, and sauteed broccoli.
I quickly remembered why I've been slacking on the cooking lately:
it's time consuming and exhausting.
Liza on my back in the Ergo is easy enough but keeping Henry happy post-nap can be tough.
Thankfully, he was satisfied rinsing the broccoli in the sink for an inordinate amount of time
and eating raw couscous by the handful.
Even thought he wouldn't touch the final product,
he was glad to munch on raw broccoli after I acted like it was off-limits.....
ah, the power of reverse physcology on a two-year-old.
