Sunday FAIL

Oh my, this is one of those days I am really glad Grayson goes to bed ridiculously early. It hasn’t been a horrible day at all, just kind of off.  We spent the night at my parents’ last night after swimming because G was cranky and not willing to stay up while we ate dinner (sometimes it is very inconvienent that he goes to bed ridiculously early).

I was scheduled to work in the church nursery this morning at 11, so we hurried home to eat, get dressed and get out the door. I carefully packed the diaper bag with everything G would need in case we were stranded on a deserted island gone more than a few hours.

I’m halfway to church and I look to the seat next to me- no diaper bag. Uh oh. It was too late to turn around, so I just said a little prayer that we wouldn’t have any diaper catastrophes or hunger attacks. Everything was fine, and when I got home, yep, there sat the diaper bag, packed and ready to go.

I was feeling optimistic and adventurous about lunchtime today, so I decided to try feeding Grayson avacado. The last time I tried, he threw a huge fit, but I thought it was because I made it too chunky. So the first thing I did was put a hunk of it in one of those net-feeding-thingys, which if anyone has any suggestions on how to clean those things, please let me know. Bleh, they are gross. I popped him in the Bumbo, put it in his hand, he brought it to his mouth, and WAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh brother. Come on kid, don’t you know avacado is the world’s most perfect food? Even the internet thinks so! I could seriously eat my weight in avacado. My kid, not so much.

Still clinging to some hope that Grayson and I will be bonding over tortilla chips and guacamole some day, I strapped him in his booster seat, forgot to put on a bib (bonus FAIL), and tried to feed him the smoothest, most pureed, no-chunks or lumps avacado (I even mixed in a little formula to make it even smoother). THIS was his reaction to THAT:

I tried again, and got Grayson’s classic “Ooh, that light is so much more interesting and lovely than that crap you are trying to feed me” head turn.

One final try, and this time I got the head dodge so the avacado ended up on his forehead instead of in his mouth. Now this, he found amusing.

So then I gave up on avacado (for now), stripped him down, and G had a lovely time playing on the floor and just being adorable.

I think this one’s a keeper!

    If you were in the nursery, I'm sure you heard our little FAIL, also. >.< But, oh boy – Lil' G sure does have that 'being adorable' thing down!

    Avocado is the one thing Isa refuses to eat. She threw up the first two times I gave it to her and the third time she gagged so much I expected her to blow chunks but she managed to hold them in (just barely). So sad because avocado is so good for them (and helps them gain weight too!)Isa is in one of her, I'm going to subsists on air and whole milk for a week just to freak you out, mommy stints and I'm loving it, as you can imagine.I hope tomorrow is better!
