Last weekend I was in northern Michigan celebrating a bachelorette party for one of my nearest and dearest friends, Amy. If you know anything about bachelorette parties you know that a. no kids are allowed and b. husbands are on the do-not-invite list too. So off I went with some of my girlfriends— drinking wine and enjoying some Mom time with the gals. Ok, so I didn’t drink wine, but I did enjoy the alone time.
When I’m away from Ted and the boys I usually leave them [or Ted] a list a things he can make to eat. I also keep in mind that I don’t always stick to my grocery or meal planning list, so if he strays from it I don’t stress out. I just want him to know he’s got backup! Now this trip I was gone Friday evening for dinner, all day Saturday [BLD] and then through lunch on Sunday. Because I missed my guys so much and I wanted to share a little recap of their eating habits while I was away, I asked Ted to snap some photos of what meals they enjoyed together. No judging folks. I’m just impressed he was able to get them fed and take the photos for me! What a guy!
So there you have it. What the bachelors are munching on when their Mom is out of town! Tell me Moms… what do you do to make sure your family EATS when you are out of town? Do you prep freezer meals? Leave a limited list like I do? Or just let the men fend for themselves?!
