Leaving Our Food Comfort Zones

One thing I know for sure is that toddlers aren’t the most open-minded or consistent eaters. We have, actually, been pretty lucky.

From the Outside Looking In

“It looks just like a museum!” I exclaimed to Jeff, his face shining back at me with the same expression of amused delight. Every light in the house was on, glowing with the vibrant pulse of everyday life. My flip flops lay just near the rug, where I’d kicked off them off to collapse on […]
