Re: changes-dh will be working, too

I'm going back to work next week after maternity leave with my DS. My DH stayed home with my now 3 yr old DD, he went to school. He is now also working full time so we are in the same boat. 2 kids in daycare. 2 adults working full time.

For meals, I make ahead oatmeal in mason jars to take to work with me. My DD eat frozen pancakes or waffled with berries on top or cereal every morning. DH takes a muffin and a banana. For lunch, we pack bento style with leftovers the night before. For dinner, we will be using the crock pot twice a week and making simple things like soup/salad, lettuce wraps, french bread pizza, and breakfast for dinner. I have about 20-25 ideas of things we like for dinner that take 15 min or less to cook once prepped (which things like defrosting and marinating can be done while we're at work).
