Cute LB must-post

Had to share:

Ok, so you know that LB really doesn't say much right? Unless he wants something and then he usually gives you one-word answers or one-word requests. Well, tonight at dinner, we were sitting there eating our spaghetti and LB wanted a piece of bread and butter. So he asks in his one-word way "breadbutter?". And me being the ever-trying to be healthy mom suggests the wheat bread. He isn't really crazy about the idea, but he takes it when I give it to him. He tried it and ate all of it except for a little crust. So after a little while, he starts pointing to the bread box. Since I have gotten down the habit of reading him, I know he wants the white bread in there. I try to get him to eat his dinner. You know, the "better for you" stuff. While we sit there he is occasionally pointing to the bread box. And I try to let him use words to tell us what he wants. So I wait till he has had enough and he finally gets it that I want him to actually speak his request. He then looks at me and says in his one-word request......

"vanilla?"


So I giggled and gave him the white bread.

You know, I don't like wheat bread cause it's kind of crunchy. And not like toast crunchy; like soft, soft, crunch! Maybe it's one of those texture things with him and you're really torturing him.

Oh sure, make her feel guilty for trying to make her kids eat healthy.

I wasn't trying to make her feel guilty. It seems that LB and I sometimes have similar feelings towards food that others might not think of! i was trying to be helpful! Now quit yelling at me!
