You gotta have at least one or two least favorite chores to do, right? So the other day I decided to do some of the dreaded ironing. For the most part this consists of Ryan's dress shirts. I don't know if anyone else is like me but if at all possible I'd rather not waste "my free time" at night or during a nap to do the dreaded task. I pulled out the iron and Sadie immediately started saying "no, no" like she read my mind. Then she saw some Styrofoam packaging and started poking, clawing & picking at it. I SERIOUSLY thought sweet I bet she will be entertained by this for a bit and I'll get the job done. I totally just watched (& ironed) as she made a complete mess and had a lot of fun. Harmless right? Don't get me wrong I knew I would have to clean it up, but I for real thought NO BIGGIE, I'll whip out a vacuum and woola it would be clean in no time and completely worth the mess. I finished & I got out the vacuum, then the broom, the shark, the hand held. UGGHHH Those little Styrofoam balls were EVERYWHERE & were so clingy. So it was total disaster, BAD idea. The truth is I'm still picking some stray ones up.
I need some GOOD ideas. Sadie doesn't eat, for real blame me, blame Ryan (he will never admit it but he is kinda picky- he refers to it as preferences.) It is true invite him over for dinner and he will eat whatever is served no questions, but it may not be what he "prefers." I say Sadie has his picky eating habits only he is not even picky compared to her. Most days I push it outta mind, but when I think about it or see other kids eat everything off their plates. I remember ahh yes lucky me, my baby wasn't a dream sleeper, and now my toddler is so not the greatest eater. Thank goodness she's got her looks. he he jk. It would be easier to make a list of things Sadie does eat than what she doesn't eat. Hasn't eaten vegetables in who knows how long, meat is tricky, I can sneak it in sometimes, but sometimes she spits it out. I try no snacks in hopes if I starve her she will eat whatever is served. But day after day I lose the battle. We've tried the dessert tactic, and as much as she LOVES the sweet stuff in the end she will hold out. She usually just walks away from her dinner & dessert. So I keep hoping one day it will all change or at very least I have high hopes of how I will train the next one. Anyways I don't want to rant for too long, just been thinking about it, and that's about it.
