When your child (or any adult you know, for that matter) says, "I only eat the green ones," or, "I ate all of the green ones," what are they talking about? M&Ms, right? Well Miles is talking about veggie straws. Pictured without green ones. First of all, this was part of MY lunch. Second, NOBODY'S … Continue reading Year 5, Day 83
Miles graciously prepared a lunch for me today. Housed within this plastic egg, it was not to be opened until I was at work. ...ah. Lunch.
Miles almost always leaves the house with some sort of food in the mornings but almost always neglects to actually eat it. Sometimes he just zones out and forgets, while other times (such as today) he takes one bite and says, "UGH, yucky!" Either way, I hate wasting food, and so the fate of these … Continue reading Year 5, Day 39
During breakfast (technically maybe lunch?) ate Bob Evans today, Miles and I had a little "Mad Libs-esque" fun with the kid's menu/activity page. I was honestly a little disappointed that it turned out only slightly weird.
Wanting something to snack on during the trip to daycare, I told Miles he could grab a bag of Pirate's Booty on his way out the door this morning. He emerged from the pantry with two bags. "Here, Daddy," he said, handing me the second bag. "I got one for you too. Because I'm sharing." … Continue reading Year 5, Day 27
We went out for lunch today, and Miles insisted that these would be the sitting arrangements: Yes, I was ordered to sit at a completely different table with my back to my family. But hey, I'll do whatever it takes for him to eat his lunch without a fuss.
Miles takes a lot of pride in helping Jaclyn prepare my lunch each morning, tossing everything from yogurt to my daily multivitamin into the bag and insisting on zipping it up himself. Sometimes he gets a little possessive of the food, insisting that one or more items in the bag actually belong to him. "Here's … Continue reading Year 3, Day 315
Look, okay? I'm not ashamed to admit that my wife packs my lunch for me every day. And sure, there are days where I open that lunchbag at noon and think, "...what the hell kind of lunch is THIS supposed to be?" but I always appreciate the energy she puts into it. Lately, Miles has … Continue reading Year 3, Day 269
Consuming meals can be a lengthy process for Miles, especially if he's watching TV. Sometimes he needs a little nudge to remember there's food in front of him. During lunch today, Miles was noticeably neglecting the single remaining chicken nugget on his plate. As he gazed at the television, I leaned in and eyed the food."Hey … Continue reading Year 3, Day 159
We took Miles out to get his second haircut ever today and, when faced with an hour-long wait, grabbed lunch at Urban Cookhouse beforehand. Miles is clearly feeling better today, trying as usual to get the attention of anyone and everyone around him at the restaurant. And then, someone in particular caught his eye... Within … Continue reading Day 363
