Back to School Time!
As my wife is the mother of three, one newborn, two boys under the age of six and recently inherited teenager (my niece) living with us for an exchange semester, the creator and driving force behind a new start up business manufacturing Certified Organic Baby Food ……. She is often asked, how do you DO it? Besides having an amazing husband (me) to help, it’s a well oiled and balanced machine. Keeping the family fed, healthy, dropping the kids off at school on time, delivering them to their respective after school activities and preparing snacks and lunches. Running a new business while the kids are at school and in the evening, allowing an opportunity to focus on homework and preparing a healthy dinner, without sacrificing quality family time. Making this happen on a daily basis takes focus and attention, a little luck and some advanced planning.
The Morning Of
By prepping a few days of homemade snacks ahead, she saves quite a bit of time. Mornings run smoother because there’s no shuffling and rummaging for something to eat. Knowing that the food was safely prepared, stored and packed in their lunch boxes gives us the peace of mind that we reduced the risk of foodborne illness in our kids while carving out a little more quality time to spend with them in the evenings.
