Defiant and Determined #HFbrightside

This post is inspired by HappyFamily.

Kyla is growing so quickly and soon, when’s she’s ready she’ll be getting solid foods. I can’t believe we’re already approaching this milestone. I’m excited but perfectly content with waiting. I remember what feeding Mason was like and it wasn’t always peaches and cream!

Mason was always a pretty good eater. Come dinner time we would put his vegetables on his plate first, he would gobble those up and then he’d get the protein and finally whatever starch we were having that night. He loved green beans which we found absolutely hilarious since I’m pretty sure I was mildly obsessed with green beans when I was pregnant with him and had them every single day!

As he got older he was still a good either but he was also asserting his independence. He went through a stage where when he was done with his food he would look us straight in the eye pick up his plate and just dump it on the floor.

All while we screamed NOOOOOO


True story.

But my funniest “Funny Feeding” has to be when Mason wanted his blackberries so badly he was determined to eat them no matter what. Sleep be damned.

This video still gives me a laugh even though I’ve watched it a million times and was the one who filmed it!

I’m certainly not the only one with Funny Feeding stories.

The Magic Cupcake story made me laugh because we totally get it, except we would be “The Magic Lollipop”. You can see more Stories From the Bright Side here.
