although i am quite grateful that we have access to early childhood programs locally, it can often be an experience that leads to uncomfortable squirming. i know all the mamas out there will get this, but it feels like they are there to evaluate me (and my questionable parenting skills) and not the boys.
today squirticus has a visit from a nutritionist who has been called in because he doesn’t really do much eating of solid food. lucky for him i have the bosom of plenty, and so he is definitely not starving. he certainly doesn’t put away the grub like the squirm did at his age, but since he isn’t wasting away, i haven’t really worried about it too much (ok. maybe a little, but it isn’t my biggest worry).
so i have been keeping this food log for the last three days, which has made me somewhat self-conscious about what i offer the squirt, and aware of how little of it he actually eats. cheez-its have nutritional value right?
keeping a closer eye on him has also clued me in to why becca hasn’t really lost weight despite her diet….but that is a topic for another post.
so i am working on opening my mind to the visit, and squishing down the urge to be defensive. i know there is room for improvement in everyone’s diet around here and suggestions are always good.
