This is the place where a distracted mother will muse.

Getting Benett to eat meals has been a real challenge lately. The word "meals" is operative in that last sentence... you see, he'll eat many other things... just not the food lovingly prepared to be consumed together as a family.
Case in point, we found Benett sitting on the floor in the dark pantry yesterday morning, eating Swedish Fish and Wheat Thins. When asked "why..." His response was so honest, "I just love them so much, Mama." His anguished look made it impossible for me to keep a straight face.
I'm afraid that little slip in my composure belied the fact that I do not want him helping himself to Swedish Fish (even when paired with Wheat Thins) before breakfast.
