Don’t let this happy “say cheese!” face fool you.Meal times at our house have become exhausting. Well, for Chris and I. Bean thinks it’s a lot of fun. He gets to sit in his chair and throw food, pour juice in his plate, dump his food out of his bowl, and shake his head, “Nooooo!” every time I suggest he take a bite. All activities which are, apparently, way more fun than actually eating the food.Bean’s gone through these phases before. Usually, he eats less when there’s something going on with him. Maybe he’s cutting teeth. Maybe he’s not feeling so great. Maybe he’s overly tired. And sometimes those phases last a week or so. But usually, we can figure them out and we roll with them and they’re over just about the time I start to get really frustrated.
