My baby just started preschool (insert tearful emoji here).  He is nearly three and we have been fortune enough to be able to have him home with my husband, me, or an entrusted nanny for all of his life....
When I was young, I was the world's worst eater. Seriously. Think having a Pepsi a few times a day (being 6 years old!), endless bags of chips, candy, and one too many Happy Meals! After so many years...
