It was a busy, sick week for the Mills. Lots of thrown together meals, leftovers and eating out. Better luck next week? Perhaps. Now that John is back in school I have at least 2, probably 3 nights a week where it is just Gwen and I for dinner. Which makes it hard for 2 reasons, 1 anything that takes longer than 15 minutes to make is difficult to do with a toddler to distract. 2 Gwen will only eat so many things, and dinner is a little stressful when she doesn't like what is presented to her. I really make an effort not to have battles over food, or make a dozen different things for her. But it still bothers me when I make a meal and she literally pushes the plate away and says "no". Unfortunately, that will be the next 10 years of my life.
Hello chicken nuggets, goodbye salmon pate.
