I always said before I became a mother that I would trust in my gut instinct and do what I felt right no matter what the people around me were saying. I have held true to that until this Easter weekend. Our family had a great time at our church’s Easter egg hunt for the family. You may ask what does this have to do with me sticking to my gut, well you wait and see.
My son is almost 2 ½ years old. Day 1 since he was born, I always said I was going to feed him healthier food choices than what most kids these days are eating. I have stuck to that. Yes, there are days that I may be exhausted from work and it’s easier to swing by McDonald’s to get him dinner. Even though I am at McDonald’s, I try to make the healthiest of a decision in his food choice (if that’s really possible with fast food). That means choosing yogurt and fruit instead of French fries or choosing a hamburger with only ketchup instead of fried chicken nuggets. I know it’s not “healthy” per se, but sometimes I just need an easy going night after a long day at work.
