After going to bed at 9:30pm I was certain Lauren would sleep in, but she decided it was time to start her day at 6am and even went downstairs on her own and yelled from the bottom of the stairs "eat, eat, eat.....I want a peanut butter and jelly" The day had officially started. For as hungry as she was claiming, she only ate half of a half of PBJ. Finding new foods, knowing when she is hungry and her new thing....spitting out food, it can be a struggle. Lauren gets bored easily of the same things and will say she wants to eat, but then barely touches anything. And the spitting thing is baaaad. And with her not in daycare any longer, I can't blame one of those kids:) She sucks the juice out of an orange slice and then spits it out or if you suggest another food, she'll spit out what she is chewing. Maybe she is fearful if she doesn't take that new food right then and there, it will be gone!
We got out of the house for a playdate with Max and Sarah. We loved seeing their gorgeous new house and Lauren enjoyed the new environment. Because of the early morning and longer drive to their house, she napped in the car. So, I was dragging by 3pm. I felt so guilty about being so tired, all I wanted to do was lay on the couch and all she wanted me to do was play. I think being a mom, you are always guilty about something, even if you're home all day with them.
