And then there is little Naomi. She is just the most stubborn kid I've ever known. She isn't bad by any means, but when she get something in her head someone is gonna go down. Its never pleasant. We struggle so much with her eating. Her repertoire is definitely going down. She eats next to nothing! We try the whole take one bite and taste it at least. Doesn't work. We try the eat 5 bites and then you can be done technique. Doesn't work. We just tonight tried the eat that much before this time idea. Did not work! Any suggestions? I feel like we've tried it all, but we may not know.

I've got the blues...
No, not the craft macaroni and cheese kind - the kinda down and depressed blues. I've been worse before - a lot of times actually, but I've just got the don't wanna do anything, feel kinda sad blues. I don't even know where they come from and I think that is what frustrates me. Often I feel like it comes from being overwhelmed with my small apartment. I like things in order and somewhat cleanly. But as I look around right now I see piles and messes. There is just too much to fit into these tiny apartments! I don't feel like I even have a lot of stuff, but everywhere I turn there it is! Stuff, stuff everywhere! So next Saturday Brian and I are going to go through the toys and get rid of the extras, stuff that has never been played with or just doesn't go with anything anymore. So there will be a trip to D.I. Gwen is at that destructo stage where everything that is in a drawer needs to be out of it. So that always puts a lot of work on the table - like when every single measuring cup and spoon is strewn about the house they all need to be cleaned. Maybe I wore myself out with all the V-day treats. There was a lot of dishes after that. That would have been a good picture to include after the treats display. huh?
