Quick Mom Tip

If you have a fussy eater... this may be worth trying. Maddy is definately one of those fussy eaters. So much so that she has been to a nutritionist and put on "Pediasure" because there are some days that she may have only a few bites of food. Recently, I discovered that this little trick can work with any food that you can fold (pizza, quesedillas, sandwiches etc...) Maddy was complaining that she couldn't finish her pizza and it was too much. So I suggested she fold it up and make it smaller. I showed her by folding her pizza, making it look like half it's original size. "Oh! OK", she said... and finished her pizza off in no time. It's worth a try!


Recently, the girls have been playing a lot with their play tea set. They will set some stuffed animals up around their little play table and have tea together. I made the mistake one day of letting them put water in their cups. Since then, I have had to put a stop to it because they end up making a huge mess with water and getting the carpet all wet, so I made a rule, "no more water". I awoke one morning to hear them playing together. I overheard Maddy say "... go get some water for our cups...". Jordan was probably on her way to go get some when she saw me out in the hall way. I told them they had better not be playing with water! I quickly investigated to make sure there was indeed no water in their teacups, and headed downstairs. I then heard Maddy say, "I told you!".
