sometimes we eat fast food

Sometimes I feed my three-year-old daughter McDonald’s. And by sometimes, I don’t mean occasionally or rarely. I mean about once a week. And what’s worse? I eat fast food about three times as often as she does.

Writing those sentences just now gave me some serious anxiety. Because in a world of Paleo diets, organic freezer meals and green smoothies, I feel like I might as well have just told you that I feed my family drain cleaner. And some of you are probably thinking, “Well, she’s not too far off!”

See, therein lies the problem...

  1. This made me laugh because I'm the same way! Driving through chick-fila numerous times a week because I don't have time to eat when we are at home. Gotta be moving all the time! Momma shaming and judgment is hard. I feel ya! But we do what we gotta do!

  2. I think everyone should give you kudos and a standing ovation for things like remembering to feed everyone in the family at all. I mean unless he begs, Sterling regularly gets forgotten, so I can't imagine keeping up with so many feeding schedules. Plus, sometimes I just want a blizzard, you know. To heck with green smoothies. You're doing a great job and you're a fabulous mom!

  3. Sweet grace is a precious thing. It's so important to extend it - esp to other mamas. About food. Or parenting. Or a hundred other things... Thanks, Em, for the reminder!

  4. My family also eats fast foods and I even call for delivery service sometimes. It’s a total treat when I ask for delivery but I make it sure that there’s a salad or steam veggies I can prepare in a few minutes.

  5. I can't believe how much we have in common sometimes. This resonated so much with me, particularly because of my experience working in a center for women with eating disorders. I want so badly for food to be enjoyable and offer freedom for my littles. I also struggle with all the food shaming and such going on in social media, good grief!
