I’ve started to call Mason My Little Food Camel. Since he’s barely eaten all week I think the nickname fits. I imagine that he’s storing food in the same way a camel stores water so that every bite is lasting him a long, long time. He ate wonderfully Monday night, but breakfast has bombed for the last three days. He’s been more interested in playing with his classmates then eating lunch at school, and he’s refused to eat pretty much everything expect for tons of whole milk and organic apple-cinnamon graham crackers at dinner. Instead of freaking out, I decided to make this list of all the stuff he’s turned down. It makes me feel happy that he’s had the opportunity to eat so many wonderful things–all of which he’s loved in the past–and I recognize that this is just a passing phase. He may be difficult this week but perhaps next week he’ll eat everything on this list and more. What has your babe refused to eat this week?
