Pudding Anyone???

The other day I was reading on line things that you can do with your toddler and looking for ideas to do during the day, because frankly I sometimes get very stir-crazy if I can't talk to another adult or get out during the day to break up what Nicole calls "It's Yesterday Once Again". Does anyone else get like that? If so, please call me. Chances are that I am feeling the same way. Please don't get me wrong, I LOVE to be at home with my little boy, who is growing up way to fast, but sometimes you need some small thing to brighten your day, or you forget how blessed you are to be able to stay home with your little ones. Enough said, here's the story....

As most of you know I have one picky eater sometimes, especially if it is something new to eat and even if it is sweet. He didn't want to eat his birthday cake, and he didn't want to eat his Valentine cookie, but I have discovered something that he does like to eat and will go at it with full force. Sometimes I will ask Alex if the food is good and he will enthusiastically say, "MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM". That is one thing that I do want to get recorded, because he will sometimes be eating and just make little sounds to show me that he is enjoying the food.

Anyway, I was reading online about activities to do with your toddler and I came across pudding painting. Instead of finger painting (which I don't think Alex or I am ready for yet), use pudding to paint. I dabbed a bit on his high chair tray, and this is what happened. Also don't be alarmed at that big orange mass of food on his tray, that is a pile of sweet potatoes. He eventually ate those with a dab of pudding on top of them.
