lamentation

Blast you ear infection!
You appear to have left more in your wake than scads of ibuprofen and a massive sleep deficit.
You have robbed me of my good eater.
Sir O was always such a great eater, it was fun to brag.
"He's not picky, he eats plenty.... with a smile on his face to boot."
Now, it's normal for babies to refuse to eat when they have ear infections. But apparently in the process Sir O realized he COULD refuse food.
Heaven help us.
Now he's fine, only not eating ....so much.
In desperation tonight I fed him oreo in between bites of carrots and peas. Quite the combo, eh?
Just one more stress in a string of stresses. Ain't life grand?

Oh, that really sucks! I love your desperate attempt with the oreo between veggies, though. Sounds like something I'd do. :)

Peanut doesn't refuse food, she takes everything and just plays with the stuff she doesn't want. Great.

I give Caden an M&M between bites of dinner. He is almost 3 and is the most stubborn eater ever! You aren't alone!:)

I feel your pain. I am one of the parents that complains about a picky eater. I have learned to give him food in stages. (the veggies first, when he's most hungry, then whatever the main course is, then his milk. otherwise, he drinks his meal away.)

Luckily for you, I'm sure Sir O will get better and his appetite will resume. I empathize in the meantime!
