Fun Recipe to Try: Hotdog & Spaghetti Squids

Many moms struggle with fussy eaters, and that’s why I wanted to share this super easy, fun recipe with you all today to give you the inspiration to get cooking, get your toddlers and young children involved (even my older kids love to make these!) and have fun while making something the kids will love and will certainly eat.

I teared up quick. I find myself doing that a lot lately.

I suppose some of that can be attributed to all three of those things, in equal parts. My question to you moms or moms to be is, does this happen to  you as well? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

My thought is, why do I have to be so darn sensitive??

P.S. Here is the commercial that made me cry! Have you seen it?
