One of the things I was unprepared for was the amount and length of time these guys spend at the table. I mean I knew that their schedule was
Wake up ~ eat ~ play ~ snack ~ play ~ lunch ~ play ~ snack ~ tv ~ dinner ~ bed
But that now equates to eat ALL DAY LONG! It doesn't help that my oh so helpful husband introduced them to kiddie crack ie Frosted Flakes.
FeiFei refuses to eat with chopsticks anymore
(so glad I bought a bunch of those in China) or eat noodles or rice.
Cav still eats a little blander diet but is now refusing noodles and frankly I suck at rice.
FeiFei is used to fruits so I try to have a bunch of that around, and I try to offer oatmeal for breakfast instead of the kiddie crack but man if she sees the blue box it's all over!
I am now at the point that I make dinner for everyone else and if our two newbies don't like it they can always have the bowl of noodles (costco) which has been a lifesaver. It was all Cav ate for the first week (adding some meat). I don't think he ate many veggies and even lemonade is to "spicy" for him.
They still mainly just drink water, and are constantly thirsty.
Anyhow, snack #253 was blackberries (thankfully I found on sale!)
Don't mind the Carl's Jr cup it was orthodontist day and not FeiFei's!
We aren't quite that bad - yet!
