MPM! And Meyah!!


Anyone else feeeeling that time change?  Like big time? Oofda!  I am struggling today!  Lucky for me, though, it was MEYAH DAY!  As in, my sweet niece’s first day hanging out with me and my posse while her mommy and daddy were at work.  As expected, she was awesome.  I think it’s safe to say that she has 1 HUGE fan (ME!) and 4 little groupies in my Starr-lets.

I had someone comment on a previous MPM post and ask about what we feed our kids….do they eat what we eat or do I make separate meals.  I couldn’t reply to them directly because it was an “anonymous” commenter, so I figured here was the best place to answer that.

In this house, I make one meal.  And the kids are, for the most part, expected to eat what J and I eat.  Of course, there are times that we switch things out, but almost always they are served and eat the same main course that we are.  And I will say — our kids are really very good eaters.  Eli is the pickiest and often times eats very little for dinner.  That being said, however, he eats like a ravenous giant at breakfast and lunch.  And we’re ok with that.  The kids know what we expect and make choices according to that.  I should also mention, that I really do try to meal plan according to everyone’s likes and dislikes.  For instance, when Addi was smaller and didn’t like corn, I didn’t make many dishes with corn in them OR if I did, I’d wait to make that meal until a night when I knew she was going to be with the grandparents.  Now, I’m NOT saying that this is the right way to do it.  At all.  As a matter of fact, I’m sure there are plenty of parents out there who DO make multiple meals for each member of their family and, hey! if that works for them, then GREAT!  As far as I’m concerned, to each their own!  And we just do what works for us!

Anyway, keep those questions coming!  AND remember to attach your email to your profile, so I can email you directly!

Happy Monday, friends!
