The Bucket List 'Grow Something'

April 29, 2016

I've been searching Pinterest as of late to discover new things for us to do as a family and with Brody this summer.  He is getting to that really cool age, the fun one, where he's starting to become our little buddy. There isn't a day that goes by he doesn't have us laughing. Big, belly laughs too. His jokes, his inquisitive nature or the petrified face he makes while Jesse rides him around his bedroom in a storage container.  I'm betting dad probably made the "ride" a bit too fast, but laughter definitely followed. I know I'm biased in saying what every single parent says, but I swear this boy is just so smart. A little stinker every now and then, but very smart none the less.

I think I've mentioned my little guy is a picky eater before, have I? Well... he is.  Unfortunately it takes all of the energy combined between my husband and I to get him to eat, let alone try something new. Sometimes I get sad because of all the delicious treats he's missing out on and tend to travel down that road of wondering if I failed him with foods. I've heard this can be common with his age, but still's defeating no less. We're slowly working on it and I feel like a warrior mom the days I succeed. Those days where both kids eat and eat well, I totally feel like I have my shit together.
