On days (weeks, months, ...) when I feel like all I am doing it feeding people all day (breakfast, second breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert, night time snack, etc.) I've decided to start reminding myself it could be worse. In Little House on the Prairie times, pioneer times, any period of time before grocery stores and microwaves and ovens, women spent essentially the entire day cooking. The time that food prep and cooking would have taken, made it so they really were COOKING ALL DAY LONG. Good thing they didn't have a local library, bookstore, television or internet.
