Good intentions

I try to give my kids a variety of food thinking that they’ll eventually like the vegetables. Today was no different. I LOVE peas, but nobody else in my house does. However, I will not stop offering them to the boys because maybe they’ll eventually cave in and learn to love them as much as I do.

As you can tell, I have my work cut out for me. Brogan loves to squish them instead of eat them. At least he’s working on his motor skills!

On a non-healthy topic—I made my hubby his birthday cake and it was delicious!

Butter cake with a jelly layer and topped off with chocolate icing and strawberries. The key to not eating it all is to share it with others. We gave huge pieces to the neighbors and we were only left with half. It was nice to splurge on a special occasion, but I’ll be glad when it is gone and I’m not tempted.
