Feeding My Son...
Okay, feeding my daughter has always been a pleasure.
I mean, yes, we have to occasional whine that she wants to eat in the family room...which i think is because my nanny lets her eat in the family room when i am not around. but, for the most part, she's willing to try things, and if she doesn't like them, she puts them on the side of her plate. a pleasure.

my son, on the other hand, eats the following things: hot dogs, pasta (plain...with NOTHING on it) or out of the macaroni and cheese box, the occasional chicken leg, grilled cheese, cream cheese or peanut butter on crackers, cheerios, and junk food (this catergory includes sugar-cereals, which he only gets on saturdays, cookies, candy etc.).

everything else gets the same reaction. "yuck. ich. it stinks like." accompanied by a scrunched up sour-looking face. no joke.

i cannot get this child to eat dinner. he'd rather drink his meals. he's obsessed with milk, and would have 10 cups of milk a day, if i'd let him.

i guess the other problem is that my nanny is NOT adventurous with his meals. she gives him macaroni and cheese or grilled cheese. every day. for lunch. i also have no clue what she's giving him snack and drink-wise while i'm at work. is it rude to ask her to keep a list of what he's eating?

will this get easier, or am i destined to have a picky eater for the rest of my life? Please, dear god, don't give me one like my little brother (who spent his high school years living on defrosted frozen food - waffles, pancakes and pizza bagels)

I'm a displaced American writer, mom, and wife living in Canada who muses about my life, my kids, my tv watching and my slight obsession with celebrities.
