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.
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!
