|Having a few friends over I cooked....|
While I am proud when you tell me that you want "sous vide steak," I do have a confession or two for you.
You see, sometimes when your mom is away on business, and it is just you and I - I feed you what we call "junk food."
Yes- your dad has blogs where he talks about cooking at home, I have recipes, your mom has made videos of you and I together in the kitchen. I preach healthy eating - but sometimes, it is just pizza.
Being a dad means that sometimes we see reality a bit better. And before I was a dad I might give a jaundice eye to someone who told me they fed their kids pizza, or chicken nuggets. Reality is a funny universe.
Here is the truth: you are growing up healthy, with appropriate height and weight. You take your time eating, and you are a good kid.
Still- some of my favorite moments with you are in the kitchen (and I confess, some of my others are when we sit in McDonald's).
Perhaps when you have a son you will have strict rules about eating - but I hope not. Nothing like good junk food to feed the soul.
