Momfession: I Don’t Make My Own Baby Food

Alternate title: I feed my baby prepackaged pureed food.


The thing is, I really do want to make homemade baby food for Paul. And I do take his nutrition extremely seriously. I really do, promise.

But I tell you what, life has really been kicking me in the butt lately. And unfortunately, my goals of homemade baby food have been put on the back-burner.

But why do I feel so guilty about admitting this? I shouldn’t feed so ashamed.

I am still a good mom if I don’t make my own baby food, right?

I think I’ve reached a point where I need to do a little picking and choosing about how I spend my day. Evaluate the things I’m going to go the extra mile with, and the tasks I’m willing forgo doing myself, and succumb to the convenient route.

I cloth diaper. I breastfeed. I do fun things throughout the day with all four of my kids, and I work from home. I love my kids fiercely, and I’m doing the best I can. If the best I can do is feed baby Paul store processed baby food, so be it.

Maybe someday soon, when the big kids go back to school and life slows down a bit, possibly homemade baby food will be something I attempt.

But right now, I’m in a parenting survival mode.

Paul will be just fine, I’m sure of it. And so will my big kids.

Because you know what? We had fast food for dinner last night. *DOUBLE GASP*
