As of today, I’ve officially been back at work for a month. This new reality is quite a change (read challenge) for me. Feels like I only just figured out my new full-time mom role (ahhhhh!)… and now I’m attempting the balance of work and home. Everything seems to happen at an accelerated pace. The rush to catch the train, prepare breakfast, have my morning coffee (very important), dress my son, and dress myself is dizzying. It all leads me to the conclusion that restful, one-on-one family time is the best part of my day.
Lately it has been a struggle to get H to eat his veggies and soup has become my go-to solution. He loves soup (for now anyway). I made this hearty, spicy soup last week and it was delicious. It has the whole family’s stamp of approval.
