This is what I hear over and over at meal times. It's getting to be a bit frustrating. Rowan has known how to feed himself for a long time now, but he's getting lazy. He wants to sit there while I feed him, like a baby. He whines and cries until I give in, and I'm tired of it! I've told him that he's a big boy now, and he can learn to eat by himself. He just replies, 'Mommy, I'm not a big boy, I'm a little boy!" Now what do I say to that?
Today we had our usual showdown at lunch, with me compromising to putting the food on his fork. I was pretty sure he was just getting tired, and that makes things worse for everyone! After he finally finished, he sat down to listen to Adventures In Oddessy, and fell asleep on the chair! So, I put him in his bed.
I really need to figure out how to stop the whining at mealtimes though. I want to stay positive with him, but some days it's just so hard!
On a different topic... the other day I bought the cutest fabric to sew a dress for Bria. I'm no seamstress, but Keith's mom bought some patterns a while ago, and I know she's made lots of little dresses before! I'm sure that kept her busy, having 3 girls to sew for! I was torn between some girlie pink fabrics and this brown one, but the brown won! It just suits Bria better with her red hair and all. The blue fabric is for either lining or maybe to mix and match with the brown. I'm not sure yet!
Stay tuned early next week for a new review! I got the cutest little clip to review... and I love it so much I just went and bought 2 more!!
