If you count pickles then D ate 2 different kinds of veggies today. Since I’m the Mom, I am counting it.
This face makes it seem like he is enjoying that carrot.
This one says otherwise. I told him that if he wanted pickles then he had to eat carrots too. His veggie quota for the day was filled – hey, better than nothing.
I had to babysit at the gym today – double duty this week. We are going on vacation next week and I need someone to take one of my shifts while I am away so the way we do it is to swap a shift with another sitter. It was packed with older kids again and man they did not want to be there. I felt so bad for them. There really is nothing in the room to occupy them. Some of them are lucky enough to bring a Nintendo DS but the others just have to suck it up for an hour and a half.
Before heading out this morning I had my oatmeal. Today was a simple combo of oats, cinnamon, banana and a sea of PB2. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day – I love that warm tummy love I get from this creamy stuff.
For lunch today I made a rather flavorful salad. I topped a bed of lettuce with red pepper, zucchini, roasted cauliflower (I roasted it last night with olive oil and curry powder – it is superb), roasted sweet potato and cottage cheese. I used a little PB2 mixed with extra water for dressing. It may sound odd but it was tasty.
This week is a doozie. I am cleaning tomorrow instead of Friday because D’s endoscopy and colonoscopy are happening that day. Wednesday I have to babysit at the gym again and Thursday I have to make sure D stays low key ALL day because the poor thing can not eat a single bite of solid food – that is going to be TOUGH (thanks for the Italian ice Grandpa). And starting Wednesday the poor little muffin has to take milk of magnesia in the AM and PM until the day of his procedures. I feel bad for his little tush already.
I hope your week is off to a good start. Have a lovely day.
