Is dinnertime a struggle at your house, too?

Yep, mine too! That is the time that the baby wants to be fed, Isaac coming up and saying,"What's for dinner?! I'm STARVING!" and usually for Isaac and Adam to start arguing about something minor that soon escalates to either screaming or tears.

Now, I gotta add a disclaimer here. I'm not the one who does the cookin'.

For those of you who know me personally, this comes as no surprise, but for my loyal reader, whoever you may be, that hasn't met me in person yet.....I'm sorry to disappoint you. I'm no cook! Chris is an excellent cook and enjoys it, whereas I stink at it and hate it. So we decided early in our marriage that he'd do the majority of the cooking.

If it brings him such pleasure, why should I take that from him, right??


But that seriously doesn't diminish the fact that dinnertime is a hard time for most mothers as they prepare to get a meal on the table. Since it is usually moms who are doing this, Ragu has heard your plea for help!! They have created a Facebook page called "Mom's the Word for Dinner!"

Here's what Ragu has to say to you moms:
We strive to bring moms together to share stories and tips, celebrate the small wins and laugh about situations that only other moms can relate to. Each month, this online community will be tackling topics from how to deal with picky eaters, to getting them to eat their veggies to what's being discussed at the dinner table, with some tips from parenting expert and author, Dr. Michele Borba, and Registered Dietician, Dr. Felicia Stoler.

In addition to giving moms an opportunity to talk and have fun together through their community, there will also be videos, pictures, polls, quizzes, and even dinner ideas with quick and easy recipes! (Hey, maybe even I could make these!!)

While we're talking about Ragu, did you realize that Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional pasta sauce, Ragú® provides two full servings of veggies in every half cup of sauce? This company does strive to help moms not only have a community, but also to get those veggies into our kids....something we all know isn't that easy!

There is even a contest going on right now where you could tell your story and have a chance to be in an ad in People magazine!!

So go check it out! Who might even see me there!!

Disclosure: I was entered for a chance to win a Ragú® prize package in exchange for this post. No monetary exchange took place.
