The Ol' Switcheroo

Dear Friends, 
As a young girl, I was once asked to make a collage of a food group.
Nursery school style, that's how I roll.
I made one of chocolate (to my mama's extreme embarrassment, I am sure).
People, I lead a meat and carb happy lifestyle. I've been to South America! 
Rice, beans, chicken and some cake for dessert?
Wash it all down with a Fanta?
Muita obrigado, I think I will.
I don't do fruit.

It has become startlingly clear to me that Cruz eats better than I do.
Here is what he ate today:
mango, bananas, applesauce, carrots, sweet potatoes.

Want to know what he doesn't like?
Cereal.
In college I could eat cereal three meals a day without batting an eye.
Blonde hair, blue eyes, average build, no cereal... whose kid is this?
So I've done what every enterprising mama has done since the dawn of time... I sneak it in.
This morning as Cruz ate his banana (with hidden oatmeal), I eyed my own bowl of oatmeal and his leftover banana puree.
No... that's crazy, right?

  1. Oh, cereal for dinner! I used to eat Quaker Oat Squares in brown sugar with peanut butter for dinner. And brownies for breakfast every so often. Mmmm, those were the days!
