Adventures in feeding a toddler

Oooh meal time..some days it can feel like winning the lottery and others like putting teeth. One day we LOVE eggs, the next, we won’t even give them a poke with our fingers. One day we LOVE sweet potato fries, the next, we squish them in our hands and throw them on the floor, along with every single piece of chicken nugget in sight.

It is days like this i wish we had a dog, maybe I can rent one just for post meal clean ups.  IMG_4786 IMG_4787  IMG_4792 IMG_4795

This is so Sage! Everything you said in this post could be applied to how Sage eats. At least we get to go through it together!

We share in the feeding woes! Wayne shared this link with me just today... made me feel a little better...

Take note of this line in particular...
"Children this age often eat one food for days or weeks at a time, which is perfectly normal"

So I guess cheese and crackers at every meal is normal!

Our dog LOVES feeding time. She hovers around C knowing that things will eventually get dropped.

We have the same problem too! It drives me crazy. It is good to have a dog to clean it up, but bad when your son thinks it is a funny game.

I'm so glad to see that JJ isn't the only one throwing what seems like all his food on the floor! Having a dog is wonderful, especially for those foods that stick to the floor!
