Operation: Fatten Up!
Tonsil Boy isn't doing too well in the eating category. He'll eat small bites here and there, but that's it. We battled over a small bowl of Cheerios for 30 minutes this morning. Thankfully my perseverance paid off and he finished them. Despite the ample amount of pain medication that he's consuming, it seems that his throat is just too tender. He's lost 4 pounds since the day of his surgery. Momma just isn't happy with that.
Thankfully my chubby babies have always slimmed down to regular sized toddlers and have never had to struggle with weight issues. I know that some moms have to "diet" their babies or try to stuff them full of calorie laden foods in an effort to fatten them up or slim them down. I guess that it's my turn now. Commence Operation Fatten Up! I hit the grocery store this afternoon buying all of Mr. Picky's favorite foods. It seems that man cannot live on ice cream alone. (Go figure!) Warm cupcakes just came out of the oven a bit ago and we're having a robust meal worthy of Thanksgiving overkill status.
