Lunch From HE Double Hockey Sticks

Ok well recently I have been having issues trying to get the boys to eat. They havent been eating much of anything. I kinda contribute this change in appetite to the fact that they each have 6 teeth coming in, not to mention the fact of a change in disposition. They have been downright AWFUL!!

Anyway we have always taken and cut their food up, being overly cautious I say because I dont think we were like this with the girls. Its just we are older and know more I guess. For whatever the reasons we have never just made a sandwich of any kind and cut it up to where they could just pick it up and bite off it. Yesterday I decided to try just that. Oh and just to clarify I did cut the sandwich into 8ths, to be on the safe side.....

I made the boys egg salad, who wouldnt like egg salad? They like eggs...right?

Ty took the first bite after a little coaxing
He wasnt too sure about it at first.

"Hmmmm it doesn't seem so bad"

"In fact this might be pretty good."

"Uhh wait a moment, ewwww! No No I dont think I like this"
He proceeds to spit it out!

"Im not even going to try it"

Ok well the egg salad was a flop and a half.
What should I try next I asked myself....
Oooooo how about some Peanut Butter and Jelly? Ill make half a sandwich this time but who doesnt like pb&j?

Apparently Ty doesnt mind it too much

"Look in my mouth mom"

"Yeah I can dig it"

"Ok enough of!"

"Nope, not gonna try it"

"No! No! No!"

Ok well I had to get him to taste it so he can find out that its sweet and tasty
Well he didnt like it.......



"Are you crazy or something?"

PB&J was a flop
I guess I ought to go with the old standby so they can at least have something on their stomachs.

Hots dogs and cheddar cheese

"Yes Mom, much better"


I guess you never know until to try to see what they like. This doesnt mean that I wont keep trying. Eventually they have to like it....RIGHT?
Gosh I hope so
Im running out of ideas!

LOL! I love the pictures to go along with the story. Burke is my picky eater. Starting a few months ago, we've told him that he has to try ONE bite of whatever we put in front of him...if he doesn't like it, he doesn't have to eat any more. 9 times out of 10 he'll figure out that he likes it. But I've seen "that" face a bunch of times ;)

We are going through the fussy food stage at the moment too. It's so hard trying to find things Miss M will even try. Ugh. HOpe this phase passes quickly. Thank goodness I have Flynn to eat both his and her shares of everything ha ha.
