As i've mentioned before, Charlie loves him some dessert! Hannah does too, but she often leaves half on her plate. My son was a much higher sugar tolerance, apparently. And its also much harder to get him to eat his vegetables. we have the most luck while we're preparing the food. like here, they just halved a cucumber and walked around eating it like an apple. But then today, i tried to give him a plate of sliced cucumbers before his sandwich, and he was furious. he's gotten into such a bad habit of refusing to eat, walking around playing, and then just going to bed hungry. he doesnt mind, apparently. but today i decided no more, he needs to actually eat like the rest of us. i had to physically hold him in his chair until he gave up fighting me. while wearing caroline. there's alot of screaming around our house :-)
so last week we were turning off the dirt road from my midwife's house (6 wk postpartum checkup), and we blew a tire. down to the rim, right away. were were nearly 2 hrs away from patricks work, and he only has a pickup anyways. no room for the munchkins. thankfully, the AAA membership we got last summer when i drove to canada alone had yet to expire! they said to wait for a towtruck. But the towtruck only had room for me, not my 3 carseats. eventually we got 2 trucks. hannah and charlie rode by themselves, in the front seat, without carseats. i just kept telling myself, people do this in other countries all the time! Apparently, no men in south central kansas know how to change a tire, because during all that time with my 3 little ones on the side of the highway, not a single person stopped!
i think that's enough info from the crisp family for now!
