Simple Wins...

My day is filled with them: simple wins. The little things that make you smile, and make life just a little easier. Somedays it's the boys going down for two naps quickly and easily, others it's them saving the really stinky diapers until daddy gets home. Everyday they happen, everyday they make me smile.

The most recent was after getting the idea from one of you to add pumpkin to the boys' pancake mix. While I haven't tried THAT yet, I did try adding some leftover squash and carrot purees to the mix and they loved it! Yahoo, another way to eat veggies at breakfast! How did I not think of that myself?!? In addition to adding a veggie to the pancake batter, I also started  adding diced up Canadian bacon to the pancake batter. I  don't live having to 'hide' foods so they'll eat them, but I am still so stinking happy I've WON!  This morning they won because they got to have pancakes for breakfast, but I was the bigger winner because I got them to eat veggies and protein without a fight!

Seriously, try it if you're struggling to get your kiddos to eat a balanced diet!

My simple win is reading your blog...sounds cheesy, but it's true. I've been catching up on old posts and the parallels are crazy! It's so nice to know I'm not alone. KinderCoaster
