I fed my children bread and water for dinner. It was fancy artisan bread, but bread none the less. This was their choice, I swear! I offered them many other realistic dinner options including mac&cheese and even PB&Js, but they only wanted the bread. Correction: Sam only wanted the bread. Lucy is into doing whatever Sam does these days, so, you know. Only bread for her! Then, because Sam refused his nap today they both went to bed at 6pm.

Sometimes I wonder about my skill level in regards to this whole mothering thing.

Don't worry mom, I can rough it.

Yeah...I haven't felt like mother of the ear these past few days little one has been puking for the last three allergies are a bitch!

I won't worry until you post that you've moved into a shoe.

We pulled the no-nap-6pm-bedtime thing here, too. Must be something going around...

Oh, wait, that was butter without any bread. So, not as clever as I originally thought, but it's not like it's the first time for that.

Maybe I should have gone to bed at 6pm as well.

jake is lucky if he even gets dinner!
all of us so much during the day that i often just toss some granola, cheese, toast, or fruit at the kid and cross my fingers that he doesn't waste away in his sleep.
i do it because it's less frustrating than bending over backwards to make something that no one eats.

My sister's kids eat more bread than any pair of kids I have ever met! Without *shudder* butter! Do not let the evil butter so much as touch the knife that cuts the bread. :-)
They seem to be surviving.
