To Eat or Not to Eat

September 25th, 2009

Some days — like tonight — I love feeding Miss Mouse. Watching her eyes light up as she double-fists her meal with glee is very affirming to me as a parent. Tonight she showed no mercy to two big helpings of chili with pasta, tore through a bowl of orange veggies with tofu and demolished what felt like half a pineapple but was probably really only a few big chunks.

It was beautiful.

Last night, on the other hand, I watched in despair as she systematically rejected:
Mashed Potatoes
Veggies with Tofu

When she spit out her yogurt, I gave up on dinner and put her to bed. Geez, kid.
