One day, they're completely and totally anti-lunch. They want nothing to do with it (or those cute little divided plates that I got for them).
The next day, they're all about it and want to get in their high chairs before I even have anything started (not to say that I forgot about lunch, but I might have lost track of time just a little bit because I was admiring my new pedicure! Thanks to my great friend who watched the kids while I got my pedi...great birthday gift!!!!!!).
So, what to do with them on the days that they can't wait? Enter CRAYONS!!!
Crayons are new for us. I was totally afraid of them b/c I remember eating a green crayon and, let's just say, things weren't too pretty when it was on its way out. Gotta love the things I actually remember about my childhood (compared to what I've blocked out). Anyway, they're doing pretty well with them. Matt scribbles like a madman. Hailey spends her time taking the crayons out of the box and putting them back in. She barely puts color on paper, but is at peace with that.
In the same sitting as the crayon intro, we also had cottage cheese cups (because even though I made an awesome grilled cheese, the kids were on a hunger strike). Plus, it's cool to use big-people silverware.
These pictures are utterly and completely pointless...this was no day at the park feeding the ducks and sliding down the slides (because I'm totally too afraid to do that stuff with twins). It was a regular day at our house where Mom was experimenting with her new camera...go Mom...I think you may be getting the hang of it.
Captions by Matt and Hailey:
See? See how Mom got both me and the crayons in the picture, but I'm all blurry...isn't that great? She calls is perspective...I call it missing your target! I'm cuter than that box of crayons, right? It is cool though that she's not letting the product name slip though...way to go, Mom...no one will recognize that one!
Hmmm...I need to take pointers from Hailey. Every time I flip the spoon over (because that's how I roll), the food slips off! Darn!
