I'm at the stage with the youngest where he wants to feed himself with cutlery. He wants the same as us and wants to do it himself. Oh Joy! Now moving the dining room to the carpeted room does not seem a good idea. I'm wondering if a buffet in the kitchen is a daily possibility for the next six months?
So, I shall bite the bullet and cease arguing with a 15 month old because I can't win. Not only can he out ERRRRR me but he can now sign his requirements thanks to his baby sign class.
Here's my plan for the week.
Monday: Hot Dog Pasta Bake
Tuesday: Chicken Dinner (maybe without gravy!)
Wednesday: Fish and Chips
Thursday: Not So Chilli and Nachos
Friday: Sausage and .... (cringe) Mash with lots of rolling peas and sweetcorn
Saturday: Takeaway (Home made chicken strips and wedges for Mr Independence)
Sunday: The Big 3 Courser - (not decided exactly what yet!)
I know I've jibbed out somewhat and decided on food that can be finger food, but break me in gently, its 5 years since I did this!! (and we had a laminated floor)
How did you get through this phase of the toddler war for independence?
This post is linked up with Mrs M's Meal Planning Monday. There's loads and loads of healthy meal plans over there plus great plans on a budget. I urge you to look!!
