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......
So I giggled and gave him the white bread.
