Dinner was a flop tonight.
Muffin, who decided he was too much of a big boy at (almost) 15 months to take a nap this afternoon, completely refused any dinner. He did enjoy the yogurt he ended up with though.
I decided to make a quick stir fry for dinner. The boys eat it all apart. Rice, meat and veggies can’t touch. And Monkey gets cucumbers or red peppers instead of any other vegetable because he won’t eat any other.
Getting Monkey to eat meat can be difficult most days too. Today, like a little champ, he ate up his whole plate of food. I thought for sure he would fight me over the meat (which was meatless beef tips I found on sale super cheap a few weeks ago). He didn’t. He ate it all up without a sound.
Then he dumped his whole cup of juice all over the table, his self, the chair and the floor.
Ah! Life with kids is never dull, now is it?
Now, just because we can, we’re all in our pjs early, watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Muffin is in quite the mood from his lack of a nap. With any luck, I’ll have him in bed a little early tonight. And he’ll stay there. Fingers crossed.
