Here is a riddle for you. How do you feed a family with three active kids while you hold down a job, ferry around said kids and attempt to fit in homework and after school activities — ranging from soccer, to tennis, to ballet, to swimming, to band — every single afternoon?
Three kids who happen to be three of the fussiest humans ever to have been born?
The answer to that riddle?
Well I don’t happen to have it yet.
In our house, every day, meal times are frenzied. A rush of shopping and preparing, catering to different likes and dislikes and trying to cook healthy, wholesome meals without forgetting an ingredient or creating a disaster. It’s not easy. I envy those to whom cooking and organising comes naturally.
I envy those with the imagination to create their own meals from scratch and I envy those with the type of kids who just eat anything. There are days I get a pot or two on the stove only to find that something essential is still on the supermarket shelf.
There are days I can’t decide what on earth to cook so at the last minute its simply vegemite toast all around. And not being a natural chef there are days I just want to throw my hands up in the air and give in.
Take-away again, kids?
