This week’s kid-friendly real food meal plan includes onion rings, pork chops and a surprise birthday dinner! And more sickness (yuck). But we are getting so close to spring!
Yes, for real, we have more sickness. My toddler woke up Friday night vomiting. Thankfully it was pretty short-lived. We are praying it doesn’t spread!
Are you feeling tired this morning or did you go to bed an hour early? Or maybe you don’t have to worry about daylight savings. I hope we all adjust quickly. Taking away an hour of sleep is hard!
This week we have all of our usual activities plus something fun – my birthday! We started a tradition last year that the kids plan and cook dinner on my birthday. It’s so much fun! And a special treat to not have to plan a meal for once. I can just relax and let someone cook for me (well, mostly…I’m sure I’ll have to lend a hand here and there).
I also have a fun birthday post coming up on Tuesday. Stay tuned.
