As we enter the last month of pregnancy there are several things Ryan and I are doing to get ready for baby T's arrival. I know we won't be completely home bound, and thanks to Amazon Prime, almost anything can come to our home in 2 days. Many people and websites suggest stocking your freezer with quick meals before baby comes, so I've done a little of that. I also saved and froze a few servings of stews this past winter knowing we might want them come this time. When you have a big garden though, some of your stocking takes the form of freezing extra green beans, canning beets, and freezing raspberries. We also have another family member who needs taking care of, Samoa our cat. Chuck and Dons might be right down the road, but I'd rather not worry if we have enough cat food on hand when she is super hungry, and so is baby. Here is a list of things we are doing to get ourselves ready, hopefully it gives you some ideas too:
My first book 'Mindy and the Good Gut Bugs is now available!!! Just got the first 50 copies yesterday and had the joy of opening the box with my husband Ryan, sister Amy, and my amazing niece Jessica. Jess got the first signed copy. The whole family is in town for my baby shower, it's a little crazy around the house now.
I'm hoping to sell in a few local book stores but I never started this project as a way to make money. I just wanted to create a book that dietitians and other health professionals could use to teach kids about their digestion and healthy eating. You can purchase Mindy and the Good Gut Bugs on BookShop. Spread the word and share a copy with your favorite pediatrician or kid next door.
I'm a dietitian with a passion for good nutrition, bold flavors, playing in the dirt, and being with my family.
