Except for the bagels

This year's is the easiest Passover prep yet, we've decided. We don't need baby food and we don't need baby spoons and we don't need sippy cups or high chairs or boosters. We don't need strict bedtimes and we don't need diapers and we don't need half the items we've always needed, or for so long, eight years and forever, that it feels like that's how it's always been.

This is one of our biggest holidays we're starting tonight and it's definitely one of the most disruptive. But the littles aren't so little; they don't like matzah that much but they understand it. They know food will taste different all week and they accept it.

Well, they on-the-whole accept it, except for that part about giving up their very favorite, requested-for-every-meal food.

So it will inevitably, despite their good temperaments, be a very long week, and I guarantee there will be crying.

Assuming your mood is less affected by the carbs within your reach, Happy Passover!!!!
This post was inspired by the novel Reasons My Kid Is Crying by Greg Pembroke, who captures frustrating yet hilarious parenting moments through perfectly captioned photos of unhappy kids. Join From Left to Write on April 15 we discuss Reasons My Kid Is Crying. As a member, I received a copy of the book for review purposes.
