Who's the "They" in What They Ate Today?
Glad you asked! The focus of the blog is on the food my two sons eat each day, and my thoughts on how I can improve our family's eating habits. So, here "They" are!
Big R- My firstborn, a feisty and curious 5-year-old who never met a piece of fruit he didn't like. He recently declared that he has both a sweet tooth and a "meat tooth." He'll even show you which one is which. He loves to help in the kitchen, and sometimes does some menu planning with me. Big R is a big fan of all things animal, big messy craft projects, and pretending.
Little A- Just 2 years old, he's in possession of a massive sweet tooth and a bucketful of attitude. If he could eat cookies for every meal he would, but he also loves chicken and fruit. I worry that he's not as adventurous an eater as his brother was at this age- but every once in a while he'll surprise me and scarf down something that's über-healthy. Little A loves car, trucks, and all things that go...especially trains.
And, while my focus is on the kids, here's a bit about the grown-up half of the family:
Stephanie- I'm a 30-something mom who loves cooking, baking, reading, and learning. I'm also what you might call a recovering vegetarian. After 15 years of eating no meat, chicken, or fish, I'm veeeery slowly venturing back in to eating some occasional meat.
Mr. H- My wonderful husband who endures and usually genuinely appreciates my cooking. He's a fantastic parent and partner and I will do my best not to tell any embarrassing stories about him on this blog. Ahem...not that there are any to tell. He is condiment-averse and hates eggs. He is also a kitchen-cleaner-upper extraordinare, which is only one of the gazillion reasons I love him.
