If you follow me on social media you may know that I recently started working at our restaurant more and it’s been quite the balancing act! I went from a casual work at home mama to a boss mama real quick!
I have learned so much about myself in this new season. How much I can handle, what I need to feel balanced, what my “why” is and what my sanity savers are. I wish I would have went into this new season knowing these things but experiencing them is how I figured it all out.
I know for certain that organization, preparation and efficient use of time equals a very happy and confident mama – and happy household.
Where I was definitely unprepared was in meal planning and prepping. I would wake up and the struggle was so real to prepare a healthy, well balanced meal quickly for the kids before I’d leave for work at 8:30AM.
This one little seed of stress would grow as my day continued causing my mood to be dull, my vibe wack, making me short tempered and so irritable.
After about a week of this yuckiness, I started planning my weeks better. I now go grocery shopping for the week on Sunday and buy more than we need and just freeze any thing that we don’t end up using. Buying in bulk helped ensure, come mid-week, I wasn’t running frantically to the store or stressing that the boys had nothing to eat.
Making and having breakfast with my boys is one of my favorite things ever. I’m a morning person and love my morning babies so much. With the help of meal planning and delicious-ready-to-devour products like Ozery Bakery Snacking Rounds, I’ve mastered making breakfast quickly so I can savor it slowly with them.
We call Caden our Carb King and with good reason. He is a carb connoisseur (like his mama!) and he will eat more than one of the Ozery Bakery Snacking Rounds per meal and I don’t stop him because I’m usually having more than one right along with him haha!
The simple act of meal prepping and making of a well balanced breakfast literally changes the course of my day and I feel like I can be a mama and be a boss too – confidently.
And pro- tip when it comes to toasting the Ozery Bakery Snacking Rounds cut them in half and toast until warm in the toaster or toaster oven – they are easier for a baby with 8 teeth to devour, and they taste even more AMAZING!
