This Thursday I am thankful for oatmeal. It is cheap and super healthy. I have learned to use it in so many different recipes. Plus Ben loves the overnight oats I make for us with Greek yogurt, chia, flax, peanut butter, and banana. Granted I think he would eat anything with banana in it. He loves this breakfast, and it is super messy. However it makes him so happy to eat it, I don’t mind cleaning up the mess. I love that I get to see him enjoy his food with total disregard to mess or social constraints. He is just so happy to be eating. He doesn’t care that it covers his hand or face. He is happy to be with his mommy and daddy and sharing a meal. He giggles as I wash him down in the sink every morning. He takes joy in a healthy food and the simple act of sharing a meal, and reminds me that I can do the same.
I am also thankful for oatmeal because I get to see this wonderful face on a daily basis.
