Sometimes Breanne just wants to scoop all the pb&j off her sandwich with her finger, and leave the bread. Sometimes I let her get away with this (she's still getting some of the important stuff, right?) but sometimes I worry about her getting enough to eat. So this is a new solution I came up with--a couple months ago, my grandma gave us 2 buckets of cookie cutters. One bucket was all the letters and numbers, with some punctuation, and the other was a bucket full of animals. It was really a very nice gesture, but it resulted in us having a new 100 cookie cutters that end up all over our house. So while I see the potential fun that could be had with all these cookie cutters, I also want to put them someplace... where I won't be tempted to just throw them away. Not that I ever would, but sometimes... Anyway, I decided to start cutting Breanne's sandwiches into fun shapes, to see if she'd be more likely to eat them. And guess what? She was! She ate her entire "B" and most of her "K" this day, plus the "b" holes. A minor victory for me.
Please don't mind, or even notice, all the mess in the background of these pics... I'd just received a shipment of books, gathered a bunch of stuff to take out of our house, and assembled our wagon, and it's all strewn out behind Breanne for some reason. Oh, and we get a Sunday newspaper... this was taken on a Monday. I promise my house isn't *always* a disaster.
