“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” –Dr. Seuss This pretty much sums it up for us. We don’t just care a whole awful lot, but we want to teach kids (through play and creativity) why they should care and how they can! Caring, giving, community… it doesn’t have to be something extra, a new to-do to check off, another thing in our already crowded and overbooked schedules, or something else to make us feel like somehow we messed up this parenting thing again. I’m here to share how we can make it simple, how we can stop overthinking it, how it can be a way of life.
Pancakes and carrots… seems like an unlikely combo, but it turns out, it’s pretty amazing. Since we’re talking about food and wanted to pair some food related fun with our Too Many Carrots book from this month’s Outside The Box, we included a little bonus, an oh so yummy carrot pancake recipe from Smitten Kitchen.
It’s all about food glorious food y’all! So it’s no secret I love food! I love everything about food, from growing it to eating it. But one of the reasons I love food so much, is because it provides an opportunity for us to connect… connect to nature, to our creativity, to our imaginations and to each other.
