At the request of a cousin, who also happens to have little boys, I am starting a brand spanking new blog. One to cover my adventures in attempting to feed my kid and keep my house clean without all the nasty chemicals so prevalent in things today. Is this a good idea? Maybe.
I’m a single mom. My kiddo is the only man in my life and he’s a demanding little fart. And I love him to pieces.
I also hate cooking and cleaning. I’d rather be writing. My kitchen is far from spotless, we won’t go into the rest of the house. But I’m trying to do better, which includes feeding my son the best foods I can.
Again, I hate cooking. Food provides me no entertainment, either cooking or eating. It is a necessary evil, and far too often I resort to pre-packaged foods filled with all sorts of things I really don’t want to be putting in my body, much less my son’s, when I actually sit down and think about it.
Sure, they are EASY.
They are fast.
They don’t make a huge mess.
But they are NASTY. Seriously gross.
Pull out one of those packaged meals to go in your freezer right now. Read the ingredients. How many of them are unpronounceable? Or how about that thing called “natural flavors?” Yeah, that’s chemicals too, when you get down to it.
Do you know what is in your laundry detergent? Or how about the spray you use to disinfect your counters? Counters you prepare food on.
Yup, that’s what I thought too. Gross.
I am going to stay away from talking about meat at all. Seriously, if you didn’t kill it yourself, you shouldn’t eat it.
Now that I’ve grossed you out and made you think about all those things you don’t want to think about, here’s a cute picture of my kid to send you on your way. Hope to see you back here soon.
