how is everyone?

I can't believe that some of us already have 3 year olds!!

How is everyone doing?

Things are pretty good here, I'm getting into the routine more that I am back at work now. Reed started a new school near my parents. Its really nice, but a wee bit aggressive on the daily menu. I'm all for healthy, but I think spinach quiche is a hard sell to a 4 year old, lol!

3 month olds? LOL.

Wow, spinach quiche? Uhhh....I don't even think I would eat that. There are plenty of healthy foods that are more kid friendly! LOL. Glad the school is good though.

My two big kids have started school. Grade 1 and another year of preschool. Poor Emerson is lonely at home with just baby Ethan to play with! I will have to come up with good ideas for keeping him busy.

We are busy house hunting, have been for nearly a month now. I think we found a place! We are making an offer today. Fingers crossed!

Good luck, Sandra!

I am mostly frustrated. This stupid pulmonary embolism has really taken a toll. Granted, I thank God every day it didn't take my LIFE because it could have. But now that I'm past the scary part, I'm left in this sort of frustrating place. I get out of breath sooo easily. It is a constant reminder that I'm not as healthy as I used to be. I start back at the gym tonight. I'm hoping that I can build my lung strength back up to make up for the damage.

Otherwise, life is great. I'm still so thankful to be alive, honestly, that I'm a much calmer person than I used to be!

Sandra - that is really exciting! Good luck! We are going to start that process in a few months DH and I disagree on pratically everything, so it will be interesing.

Rachelle - I'm so glad they caught it and you are ok. What have the doctors said? Do you have any restrictions?

We are good, started back to school this week, and it is going great for the most part, still have a hard time remembering he is a six year old and they are meant to bounce around and be unfocused sometimes. It is going 100% better than last year though :D.

Wyn is doing good, but the antibiotics for the UTI have given her a yeast infection, can't win for loosing, am treating it with probiotics and coconut oil (for once I actually have what we need for a sickness without having to make a run to the drugstore.)

Sandra- Good luck with the house.

I could go for some spinach quiche!

I don't eat spinach or eggs, so I would starve!

We have been back to school for 4 weeks now. It has been going pretty good so far, a few bad days here and there.

We tell him that he has had it before and loved it. Or I just don't tell him what is in it...

Oddly enough, these same tactics work with DHs picky eating habits.

I wish, it seems he gets pickier and pickier, but we don't cater to it.

Basically he eats ALOT on the meals he likes and picks and pushes around the others. He's healthy and gets all his vitamins in at least

My daughter likes spinach quiche. I usually don't bother making complicated dinners, because half the time she's happy with avocado and sauerkraut, or sweet potato. I just make all her options to include vegetables. She also doesn't eat grains and dairy so those are not options at all. When they start eating a lot of grains and dairy and sugar, they start being more picky on other things.

Sandra - any news on the house?

My back has not been getting better as I'd like it to be, so since my brother's wedding I've been taking a hiatus from the gym and just working out at home. I really can't bear much weight in any front or over head position, so it just doesn't seem worth going to the gym. And then there's the joints etc while trying to run. Frustrating!

Matan has been waking up a lot more at night the past week, and it's been really tiring. He just wants to sleep in our arms a lot, and has been quite restless. He slept a 3+ hour nap down today, so hopefully it's just a phase - but I would love 6 hour stretches from him again.

My son is just funny, he is not big on grains or dairy either. He eats whole wheat bread, but has recently decided he doesn't like crust now. He likes pasta, but only with tomato sauce (one of the meals I can get veggies in him hidden in the sauce) He likes mashed potatoes, no rice or any other starch.

He doesn't like alot of "kid foods" - mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, etc

He will eat chicken, but only the white parts. Forbid it has grill marks on it.

Loves beef soft tacos! LOVES fruit, all fruit. will eat salads with ranch or blue cheese

PB&J or Ham sandwiches are a staple in our house

and he likes pretty much all breakfast foods

Funny thing is I fed him everything as a baby and toddler. He had kale, spinach, sweet potatoes, beans, beets, etc. Loved it all. Who knows, sometimes they just become their own little likes and dislikes I guess.

I think he's just at the age when their taste buds start to change. DS used to LOVE all things spicy, would eat the hot cheetos and hot salsa like it was nothing, now we cant get him to touch anything with too much heat...

DD is the same way. Even when he was really small, she loved spicy stuff. But no more!
