Love Overflowing

Tomato Thief

on November 19, 2008

Making dinner is hard with a toddler. Especially when it’s their “witching hour”. All Emily wants is your attention. Sometimes I will resort to “Clifford” on the dvr but today I thought I’d try play-doh. It worked for a while before she got bored and decided to move on. Sure, I need to incorporate her in meal making more but right now it’s just easier this way.

Anytime the refrigerator opens, Emily is there. Usually trying to climb in for a gummy bear. This evening, I was reaching in to get the vegetables for our salad. I had the lettuce, green peppers and Roma tomatoes. I had the tomatoes. Until Emily snatched one. She started eating it like an apple! Did I mention that she loves tomatoes? Now hopefully, I’ll be able to get the juice out of her shirt!

By the way, she ate the entire thing and was looking for more. I guess I better watch out when I open the door- it might not be the gummy bears she is after!

    I know I’ve mentioned this before but just have to say it again, I absolutely love that Emily loves to snack on healthy items. Not always going for the candy and cookies. That obviously comes from being raised by parents who are obviously doing their part to make sure she’s not constantly eating junk. WTG Mommy !! You’re obviously doing good thing and teaching her good eating habits. Not too freaky and not to rigid, juuuuuuuust right!
