Exclusively breastfeeding an infant and also trying to keep a hungry almost-two-year-old happy while their daddy works night shift is definitely not easy, but I've found that the more I can do ahead of time, the smoother the week will go. Everyone is happier when there is time for reading books and dancing around the living room instead of constantly hearing "don't touch that - it's hot!" And as I sit on the couch staring into baby blue eyes, I feel better knowing dinner is just a few minutes away for the rest of the family too.
Ever since I gave birth to my son in March, the most frequent question I hear (right after: "so, are you getting any sleep?") is: "so, how is it with two?"

Make-ahead meals take planning and organization (I love to plan; I am not naturally organized) and I certainly didn't come up with how to make this happen all on my own. There are lots of resources that I've found helpful and hope to keep on learning and sharing as I go along my journey to be a make-ahead mommy who still has plenty of time in the day for make-believe.
