I think one of the hardest things to do is come up with quick and easy weeknight meals. I try my best to plan out my week, but I always have a handful of dinners that seem so rushed and thrown together.

When I was little I used to get soft shell tacos from Taco Bell. I’d happily open them up, and use my spork to scoop out the insides. I’d methodologically eat the lettuce. Then the cheese. Then the meat. Because you have to save the best for last. Then I would bite two eye holes and a mouth hole in the soft shell and use it as a mask.
So we got Caleb back in swim lessons after a way too long hiatus following Nolan’s birth. Caleb slowly progressed from
the child on the side screaming a timid little fish to completely doggie paddling independently with a noodle wrapped around him. I awarded him most improved. Well, I had a moment. I have these moments in my life that I do something and decide I will never do them again.
