We do a lot of soups and crock pot stuff. You are right. The toddler stuff is endless with diapers, potty training, teething/babies/formula, and even just snacks can be crazy. Mom and I cut cheese, apples, put together fruit salads, and dole out the crackers all day long it seems. Sometimes I think the toddlers eat as much as any teenager. Since I’ve raised 3 daughters and still have one at home I’ve had kids at every age and stage for years.

I have six kids…. (5 at home) but the difference with those of us with
kids is that they are varying ages (because we had them ourselves) and all
of mine are past day care age and on to the age that I can get them to do
some of the cooking with me. You have pint-sized kids who probably don’t
I’m not sure how you do it all with perpetual toddlers… Make your crock
pot your new best friend? You can toss dinner into it in the morning and
it’s magically ready at dinner time. I cook with 10 hour work days outside
the home and that helps me a lot.
