It’s been quite a while, right? Eleven days. ELEVEN DAYS WITHOUT ME! I know my incredibly wide and devoted reading audience noticed, wink wink nod nod. So where have I been?
The Stomach Flu.
First Birthday Party!
Suffice to say, it’s been a busy almost two weeks. Also, I don’t get paid to do this. Unless you’d like to pay me, in which case I’ll tell you where to send the check/unmarked bills/red wine/chocolate chip cookies that I view as acceptable forms of payment. Until then, I did have to find time between the vomiting and partying and cupcakes and tigers to do work. The kind of work that pays the mortgage, provides the benefits and (crosses fingers) gives me an early retirement HALLELUJAH.
Now that I’m sitting down on something other than the toilet, I thought it was time to catch up my writing. Because of mombrain (this is a real WebMD diagnosis) I have eleventy million ideas in my head, and none on paper. Until I can get something with some substance together (LOLOL) enjoy this brief list of things my child has discovered he enjoys eating over the past two weeks.
Things My Toddler Likes to Eat (right now…this could change next week)
- Spaghetti. This is a big hit; it took a while to understand the concept of eating noodles as opposed to seeing what they would stick to when thrown, but once he finally stuck the food in his mouth, he loved it.
- Leaves. Yes, he’s eaten leaves before, but now that he’s really mobile and outside play time is a daily event, we simply cannot get enough leaves in our diet. Yay, fiber?
- Strawberries. We’re 99% positive the outbreak of toddler spots was quite possibly the Honduran Melon Flu, and not an allergic reaction to strawberries. BRING ON THE BERRIES.
- Blueberry Pancakes. There’s nothing like enjoying a nice family breakfast on Sunday, then looking to your right and realizing you’re dining with Violet Beauregarde.
- Soap. People keep telling me, “Oh, once he tries it for the first time, he’ll never eat it again.” Well, these people have either a). Never met our (incredibly awesome) son or b). Never tasted Ivory soap. Because, to toddlers, it’s like chocolate.
- Dryer Sheets. Man, if you set a basket of laundry down in front of Miles, he’s diving in headfirst in search of the delicious dryer sheets hidden among the towels.
And, last but not least…
Back this week with more pointless rambling, promise.
