As a mom of five, dinner can be time consuming. It’s a process in our home! My husband is a great cook, so I am lucky to say — he makes all the meals. I’m better at cleaning up, so that is my job after dinner. When it’s time to eat, he makes the plates and I pass them out. At dinnertime we feel like drill sergeants, so planning meals makes things much easier for all. Especially when you have a baby! I like being able to choose meals that are Grayson-approved but still adult-friendly. Even though Grayson has only 3 teeth at 15 months-old — he eats everything we do, which makes dinnertime a breeze. However, it’s even easier when you can prepare quick and easy meals for all — toddler approved! If you’re looking to add some favorite dishes to your meal planning, you’re going to want to pin these right now!

When my husband and I first got married, we talked about what kind of family life we wanted to have. Even though it was just the two of us and our cats that comprised our little family at that point, we knew that the habits we set before we had kids would be easier to keep than if we started them while in the throes of new parenthood. We wanted to value our family life above all else, and one thing that was important to us was to eat meals together.
In particular, we committed to having dinner together every night. It was rare that we had dinner apart, and so when Zinashi came along, it was easy to just continue that trend. When Elvie came home, things were a bit more complicated with her medical needs, but we still put her as close to the table as possible while we were eating. Though she was late to start solids, once she could sit up in her high chair, we had her sit at the table with us. Dinner is a time that is reserved for us to spend together as a family, and we all benefit from it. And in addition to the family time, Elvie has also learned a lot of her table skills just by sitting with us, where she could see everything we were doing.

For Christmas, we bought our one-year-old daughter a booster seat.
I know, it might not be the most thrilling gift out there, but I think she wouldn’t have loved any toy more.
She’s been in a high chair for months, but had learned how to stand up in it, no matter how tightly we fastened the belt, and I was constantly worried that she’d fall out on her little noggin. Plus, because we have a bar-height table, she was quite a bit lower than the rest of the family, which she didn’t care for.
Finally, while planning Christmas presents, my husband said, “What about a booster chair so she can eat at the table with us?”
The first time we put her in it, her whole face lit up, and now she happily stays seated through meals and it’s so fun to all sit around the table as a family.
