meet kaye. meet kaye mid-fit.
i don't think anyone would ever accuse her of being a picky eater. well, maybe slightly picky.
however, sometimes its difficult to hold her attention long enough to even try a bite of a meal. it can be pretty frustrating considering i find meal times to be the hardest part of the day. i'm not very creative in the meal-making department. i don't enjoy it. i never have. but guess what? that frustrated turtle above? she has to eat about forty-eleven times a day, counting snacks.
when i know she's hungry and i watch her throw food to the floor…nothing ticks me off more quickly.
so when i say i've solved the problem to toddler picky eating i mean i've solved my toddler's picky eating…for one day…for one meal.
i thought it was worth sharing if it helps one mother/toddler relationship.
it's worth it if one toddler doesn't refuse food set before him/her.
it's worth it if only for the fact that it could save a mom from having to try and think of something different after having already prepared a perfectly yummy meal for lunch.
here's what you do. go to the store. get yourself a box of toothpicks.
hand the stick to your toddler.
watch your toddler immediately try to blind/stab him/herself.
and because my gal is so darn cute and so darn photogenic…one more.
