Good tip on getting kids to eat

I have to say thank you to my friend Taya, she gave me this idea. Tonight I laced Bryce's Mac n Cheese with baby food squash. He ate vegetables and loved it. I felt like crying, but he did not know what he was eating, so it is only a small victory. I almost busted up laughing, because after his first bite he said: "YUM, Mommy this is realy good" My response: "I made it special just for you."

I do not regret my trickery, sometimes kids leave us with no other choice.

Christmas Pictures

My Mom bought Christmas outfits for all of the grandkids and wanted some pictures taken in them. I am not gonna lie, it didn't go so well, these are the best out of 125. It is the hardest for me to work with family. LOL!!!

It was really nice for me to look at these pictures this evening, it reminded me that children are wonderful and how much I love being a Mother. I had a tough day with Bryce and by the time Jason came home, I had to put myself in time out. But looking at these pics has taken all of the days pains away.

My Three Year Old

Bryce recently turned three and I wanted to share some things about him.

Things Bryce Loves:
Grilled cheese sandwiches, cars, school, his little sister Caylee, his cousins, to say the prayer, Little Einsteins, playing with his friends, puzzles, wearing hats, basketball, playing games on my phone, saying every prayer that is said, sleeping in his teepee, hide and seek, coloring, walking in the woods with his Dad and cuddling up with his Mom.

Things Bryce Has Learned:
He can count to 10 and recongnizes the numbers when they are written down, he speaks clearly and uses new words every day, he knows most of the alphabet and loves flash cards, he is potty trained, he can put puzzles together on his own and he can unload the dishwasher.

What I Love about Bryce:
I am so honored to be his mother. His smile lights up the room and he is so friendly and caring towards his family and friends. I love to see him with his dad and how much fun they have together playing in the woods and wrestling around in the house. He has the most contagious laugh that resonates deep in his gut, as he is laughing in my ear now. He is a wonderful Big Brother and he has such a gentle spirit. I can't wait to see how he will grow this next year.

(Bryce is super skinny, therefore it can be difficult to keep his pants up. He thought it was funny to walk around with his pants around his ankles. He no longer does that, now that he is potty traiined).
