If you’re going to be a parent soon and are nervous about having to prepare meals for your offspring on a daily basis, this is completely natural. Any major life change is always going to seem daunting and frightening before you start. However, if we may add our two cents, we’d like to perhaps provide a hopeful glimmer for you. Because while you’ll probably find yourself in the kitchen a lot more than you’re used to, this is actually going to be the start of a beautiful journey—and here’s why.
To quote Sir Paul McCartney of The Beatles, “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” Being a parent will involve a lot of giving, and that also means a lot of cooking. But the more you cook for your children, the more love you’ll be creating.
This love that we speak of goes both directions. The more you cook for your kids, it’ll actually make you love them even more—and that love will always be reciprocated one way or another. In other words, you shouldn’t feel like your constant work in the kitchen is going nowhere. It all goes to something, and your job is just to do the best you can.
