Can you see him?

It's been a rough week around here. Mostly, it's been my fault. I'm reading a new parenting book and am attempting to implement the rules. (I HATE parenting books, by the way, and the examples in this one are ridiculous, but I'm commited at this point.) We are also "Eating around the states," which means Little Elvis picks states at the beginning of the week and I try to prepare meals to go with each state. This worked fairly well with countries (he loved Italy and Mexico and France) but my state food selections are not appealing to him at all. Of course, the only food that appeals to him is grilled cheese with white cheese (mozzarella.) There have been several stand-offs and fits pitched over the new rules and weird food. On the plus side, Baby Plum loves potato lasagna (Idaho) and Colonial congealed salad (Massachusetts.) The Texas omelets weren't a hit with either boy.

What a fun idea with the different types of food, hopefully you will get more wins on that front. And good luck with the parenting book, if you find a miracle behavior fix for 4 year old boys let me know!

I love this food idea! How are you coming up with ideas? For example, I would have no idea what do make for Oregon or the Netherlands.

We're taking a very liberal approach with the state meals. I try to think of a food that the state grows, or I just go to the state website to find recipes. We had a rice dish for Arkansas, because Arkansas grows a lot of rice. It's VERY unscientific.

what a clever idea!
and very fun.
a great way to 1. try new recipes and 2. try new foods.


also, i'm curious----which parenting book are/were you reading?
i wish our kids just came with their OWN, don't you?
