Yummy yummy!

Ok, let's get one thing straight.  I love my kids, and I want the best for them.  What (sane) mother doesn't?  So that means, what I think is good for my kids, is my decision, and no one can make me feel like a crummy mom for doing things MY way.  Now, I would love to tell you that I have always felt this confident.  But alas, I have not.  I have let people trample over me for 1. Having c-sections (one planned, Heaven forbid!) 2. Feeding my kid formula (oh my, that is awful!) 3. Using disposable diapers (cloth is so much better!).  Well, pardon me, but if you want to raise your kids that way, then awesome for you!  Kudos!  But that was not MY decision for my family.  I am now getting more confident in my decisions, and I feel great about it!  This may be stepping on toes, and that wasn't the intent, but I needed something to write about!  Hahaha...

Now, the main thing about this post is to tell about the cool thing I do for my kids that is super easy, and healthy!  I make their baby food!  It is (surprisingly) fun, easy, and I can honestly say that I would eat it (except the texture kinda gets me, lol)...I was brave.  I tasted my kids food before I gave it to them.  And BLEH!  Nastiness!  So I researched it a little and discovered that making my kids food myself was WAY easier than I thought!   Here's the scoop.  Find whatever food you want your baby to eat first (Here is a chart as to what to give first) and then cook it (example: sweet potatoes, I bake them), pop it in a blender with a little water, and then voila!, it's done!   Now, so you don't have to do it every day or whatever, here's a trick I learned--freeze them in ice cube trays!  Once they are frozen, you can pop them out and put them in a plastic bag and store in the freezer!  Sooo easy!  And tastes good too!  Wholesome Homemade Baby Food is a great website to refer to...

So all this to say, I may not be the all-natural supermom that some of my friends think all moms should be, but I do what I think is best for my kids, and that's all that matters!  Don't dis a mom who doesn't do things the way you think they should be done.  Instead, look at what YOU are doing with YOUR kids, and know that it is what is right for you!


  1. Nice! I think you're right about other moms looking down their noses at people if they don't parent the same way. Your kiddos are so adorable :)

  2. p.s. Sorry if I ever made you feel that way, you're a great mom!

  3. Not at should hear some of the moms I know, hahaha!
