Today was a fairly typical work day: no real stories to tell other than it was Pizza Pizza day, so naturally I had a slice of pizza with my lunch today. I ordered a piece of veggie and it was great. Although the plan was to go to the gym today (bag was packed and everything), I really needed to pick up shampoo and lotion from the drug store, so off to Shopper’s Drug Mart I went. Before I knew it, it was 5pm and it was time to start dinner.
When we got home from school, Max proceeded to run-walk to the pantry and open it up to get at all the food. He found his cereal bars (Organic Presidents Choice Kids brand) and started chewing it, wrapper and all. Because little boy’s cannot digest wrappers (?!?), I took it away and a whole rolling on the floor kicking and screaming tantrum happened for a few moments. After he calmed down, I said “if you want a snack, you go into your chair”. I put Max in his chair, including putting his safety straps on. I turned around to cut up the cereal bar. I turned around to place a few bite size pieces on his tray and I see that Mister Max has already helped himself to the fruit bowl to get a snack:
Yeah – so that fruit bowl was not at that exact spot, but I thought it was far enough that he wouldn’t reach it. Well, he did! Even this morning he was pointing at it signaling that he wanted a banana. He polished off most of the pear. When Max felt like he had enough, he reach out his arm with the rest of the pear with the look of “here Mama, the rest is yours!”. How nice!
This made dinner super easy as I just gave him some other things I had around the kitchen: cottage cheese, crackers, cereal bar, cucumber. He was a happy camper! For my dinner, I ate the remainder of my crispy beef from Friday’s dinner – I swear it gets better every day!
Currently I have a bread pudding in the oven! Recipe and results of this baking adventure will be up tomorrow!
Do you like pears?
