Today was kinda a big day. Two celebrations happened. First my Little turned three. Second I marked three years as a mama.
You might recall that being a mama has never been easy on me. I have to say from 18 months on it has been getting easier each and every day. While 2.5 heading to three has not been without it’s own struggles it has certain been more than fun than I could have ever imagined.
He’s hilarious. He’s cheeky. He’s incredibly kind.
Sure there are the typical age appropriate jerk like things that he does but he has a heart made of gold. He’s inquisitive, curious, smart, articulate, and refuses to eat 99% of vegetables.
He loves to run and be outside. He tackles our poor Wyatt cat at least once a day. Every day I see him do something new.
And me as a mama? I am learning to be compassionate to myself. To release the guilt that I unnecessarily place on myself. I’ve learned not everyone does things my way and that is cool. We all love our kids. And I have learned to be a little lax from time to time.
Case in point today. Little got pretty much what he wanted all day long. For example chocolate milk and ice cream for lunch. Dinner was waffles with whipped cream and strawberries. He even got to eat them in the living room watching a movie. That has NEVER happened before.
I love him more than he will ever know. I am not sure being a mama is for me but being HIS mama clearly is. Does that even make sense?
Anyways. Waffles. Because that’s why you are here. These are super easy. They are a bit of a pain at first because they require a “mix” but whatever. I went ahead and made it and I don’t mind having it on hand. They don’t crisp up like regular waffles but they are delicious and nutty.

Waffles (makes 11-12)
From Against All Grain Meals Made Simple
6 large eggs

1/4 maple syrup
Heat up the waffle iron. Put all your ingredients in a bowl or in a blender. Blend (either in in the blender of with an immersion blender) till smooth. Let rest for 4-5 minutes. Spoon batter into your well greased waffle iron (I have to grease my nonstick for this batter). Close the lid and cook till done. Remove from the waffle iron and repeat with the rest of the waffles. Eat as soon as you can!
3 cups almond meal
1 cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon baking soda

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Use in the above recipe. Save leftover in a sealed container and make more waffles at a later date.
