This blog has been quiet for some time. So much has changed for our family in the last 2 years. From a new addition to the family, to a BIG move to a new country (!), the Kula family has been busy. Recently I’ve been thinking and thinking about what I want this blog to become, and trying to identify what I miss about it and what I don’t miss (and plan to change) about it.
First and foremost, I have decided I am NOT a recipe blogger. I like to cook and I like playing around with new recipes—but not every day (hence the lack of new recipes lately). I had much more fun in the kitchen when my oldest son was a baby/toddler and would eat ANYTHING I made for him. Those days are long gone and currently I’m facing an almost 5-year-old who isn’t interested in trying anything new. There are few things as frustrating to me as spending an hour making a new recipe in the kitchen (or an old recipe for that matter) and having my child say “I’M NOT EATING THAT” when I set it on the table. I’m working on it. As I find recipes my son enjoys, I will be sure to post them on the blog. And if I find successful strategies for coping with a VERY picky eater, I will also be sharing them here. Currently I’m working on BREATHING, a simple, but very effective tool to calm myself during the dinner hour show down.
Second, and probably the most important change is that my intention for this blog is to discuss raising kids holistically and holistic health is more than just food and nutrition. I’m interested in exploring mindfulness for kids, environmental health, green living, family connectedness, and so much more. So I’ll be writing about those subjects and our family experiences with them here. I’ll also be sharing a little more about our family and our kids. The blogs I love to read (and return to time and time again) share interesting content AND personal stories. We recently relocated to Argentina for two years and we are experiencing so many new and interesting things. I’d like to share them with you.
And finally, I’m turning off the Feedburner feed after I upload this post. It totally stresses me out to think that you all get email from me EVERY time I post. What if I want to post twice in a day? I don’t want you to get two daily emails from me….EVER. So I’m turning it off. If you want to see what Kula Mama is up to, check in anytime!
