Good. Not So Good. (Life)

Good:

This song. It is so good. And if I turn it up loud enough I sound just like Mary J Blige. JUST LIKE HER. The good thing about running with ear buds is that you can’t hear yourself! You just hear what you think you sound like! The neighbors love it.

-When Anderson makes breakfast. He’s the Waffle King.

-Playing outside everyday. The weather is amazing! Family walks are the best.

-Hunger Games (the book).

-Kingston likes spicy food! I knew he was mine. I knew it! His favorites right now are jambalaya and spicy black beans and rice.

-Living in the Sunshine State. Everyone wants to visit!

-This motto (and the friend who shared it with me): “I’ve never seen a 10-year-old FILL IN THE BLANK.” Drink from a bottle, wear a diaper, cry for a paci, try to eat food off a public bathroom floor. Basically I just tell myself this every time I start stressing that Kingston will never grasp whatever I’m trying to tell him at the moment. Because, hey, I’ve never seen a 10-year-old take off his diaper in protest to a nap!

Not-So-Good:

-Touching raw chicken. I try to be a big girl about it, but it’s just grossy gross!

-You know how they say don’t trust a person who doesn’t like animals? Well I say don’t trust a person who lets their animal poop in my yard, because I’m so going to step in it.

-Hunger Games (the movie).

-Other than his delight over spicy food Kingston doesn’t really want to eat anything else right now. (Other than french fries, but obviously we NEVER give him those). The other night we kept trying to feed him and got tired of it. It takes a lot to wear me down most days. We have some epic battles of the wills, but this night I just wasn’t up for it. So we ate while he sat in his high chair and sucked on a dirty penny. Whatever.

  1. This sentence made my morning:

    “So we ate while he sat in his high chair and sucked on a dirty penny. Whatever.”

    Love your face!

  2. Hunger is uncomfortable. He’ll eat when his hunger is greater than his stubbornness. I’ve never heard of a toddler starving themselves. Have you?

  3. We battle with Leland nightly. It is true that they will eat when they get hungry but there have been a few nights he has gone to bed eating only one chicken nugget if anything at all. I am a very strong willed person but it’s so hard when it’s your baby and you feel like HE’S GOT TO EAT SOMETHING! Hang in there. People keep telling me they grow out of it…I’m stil waiting:).

  4. I wish I could tell you it gets easier with them eating but Trevor is almost 3 and doesn’t eat much at all. We have learned and the doctors have assured us that he will eat when he gets hungry so we only offer him what we are having. 5 of the 7 nights of the week he goes to bed with no dinner. He still seems fine. Have fun!!

  5. Clay Greenhaw lived on Fruit Loops and Eggo Waffles for the first 8 years of his life. Now he has his own YouTube cooking show…go figure. There will be bigger more important battles. Save your stress for them. I wish I had learned that 10 years ago! You are doing a great job as a little momma. Girl crush continues!

  6. He’s at my house Friday night so we are going out for Mexican hot wings!!! He will NOT go to bed hungry. If we can get through raising two of the most strong-willed kids ever born, y’all and the Rock will survive. Love y’all and praying for you too.

  7. Oh! The joys of motherhood! JOY JOY JOY. I love the saying. I’ve heard it many times as I stress over the dang ‘ra ra’ (passi). I’d love to throw it out the window and be done with it, but for now it soothes him so we just go with it! ANd the eating…Lord help. Some days I feel like he didn’t eat at all, and others, he eats like a beast. I guess the old saying ‘they’ll eat when they are hungry’ rings true here too. You’re a good momma!

  8. Trevin is only eating chicken strips and black olives. I’m hoping he outgrows it soon, dating could get awkward!
