After dropping off the kiddo this morning, we hung out for a little bit with the school leads and other parents for a small social event. I felt so out of place. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I am someone’s actual mother. They never tell you how hard and awkward it is to try and make parent friends (…without any cocktails?!).
There were donuts and coffee. Sweet treats fix everything I suppose.
We chatted with a couple people and then left soon after.
Food rules my life. It informs my memories, my artwork and what brings me joy.
The irony to all this is the fact that our 4 year old is a picky eater with some serious allergies to dairy – butter included! – and nuts. It can be a challenge to feed him, but one thing we do know is that he loves waffles. And so, I’ve been on a mission to create interesting waffle recipes as a vehicle to get him to try new foods.
I’ll be posting the waffle recipes here. Feel free to use them if you’d like – definitely tweak them to your preferences. I make no promises other than the fact that the kiddo eats them and gives us a thumbs up when I ask him what he thinks.
