I figured since I'm just hanging out doing laundry and cleaning -- it's a good day to food journal. I have two kids off to day-camp tomorrow -- so I will need to hit the grocery store at some point if I am to send them off with packed lunches. I wish sometimes they weren't (is this not a word: weren't? were not? I need lessons) SO picky, because really, peanut butter sandwich as your ONLY preferred choice, kid?
Yeah, he only likes peanut butter. NO sliced deli meat at all. He'll eat peanut butter on anything -- crackers, rice cakes, bread, but DARE I place turkey on a carb -- EWW EWW EWW! In fact, he'll eat a turkey leg, but no sliced white meat. Gah. I don't know how he maintains his body type (round) on his limited diet. (No, I do. It's fucking peanut butter and carbs.) Lately he says, "I'm just not into eating dinners anymore," because I might suggest trying one bite of an offensive food.
The girls might say something mean, "that has mayonnaise in it! HAHAHAHA!" and then, he refuses to touch it until I break down the ingredients. This child WILL go to college eating peanut butter on bread and skim milk. Yes, I try to at least make it "better," by buying the most natural peanut butter they'll accept (currently Smart Balance) and whole grain or light wheat bread.
A milk story: Mr. bought 1% milk the other night on the way home from work - the convenience store had no skim - which is what we usually have in the house. The kids made cereal the next morning. "MAMA, is this your SOY milk? It's DISGUSTING!" I try to explain that it's the same thing they always have, just "creamier," nobody got it, how could milk be different? It is still sitting in the fridge.
