I Told You She'd Eat Anything!

Reese really will eat anything you put in front of her! It is so refreshing that she's not picky, because her brother certainly is. Rather than telling you what he won't eat, I'll tell you what he will eat:
  • Diego (which is what he calls Yoplait yogurt shakes - because Diego is on them)
  • String Cheese
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Blueberry waffles
  • Chicken Nuggets (and yes, I've tried baked ones, and no, he won't eat them)
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Peanut butter sandwiches (in dinosaur shapes)
  • Pretzels
  • Goldfish
  • Ice cream
  • Pizza (maybe - he picks and chooses on this one)
  • Mac & cheese
  • Pasta

That's it. I might have left out a few things (like chocolate), but there are also some things that he used to like (last week), that he doesn't like this week. Like bananas. And cheerios. But he's been like this since he was her age. He just won't eat. And right now he doesn't seem to mind going to bed without a full stomach if he doesn't eat his dinner!

Right now he usually gets what he wants to eat. And the reason for that is that the kids eat around 5:30 or 6, and I eat with Brian when he gets home (anywhere between 6:30 and 9 depending on how busy the park is, and what day of the week it is). I'm looking forward to the fall when I can make dinner and have it ready at 6, knowing that my husband will be home. I just hate cooking two meals! Fortunately we usually have leftovers, and that's what I feed Reese the next day.

On Saturday I made stuffed shells, and I had leftover spinach/ricotta mix. I saved it and decided to stuff it in chicken and coat it in bread crumbs the next night. Reese was foaming at the mouth to get a bite....

Please Mommy? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease?
Here she is showing off her finished stuffed shells plate. She also finished the peas in the background.
She just got a little messy....
But she loved it!

  1. I miss those messy-high-chair-clean-the-plate days. *sigh* Now he's decided that he doesn't like his food "all mixed up". Go figure.

    Way to go, Reese - hope she stays sensible! lol
