We just had a new arrival, our first son! After 3 girls I am learning all sorts of nifty new things like, always keep an extra towel handy while changing the boy. We are trying to teach the 9 yr old all about nutrition and balance healthy eating. The Pre-School girls are either eating like there is no tomorrow, or they eat like delicate little birds. "Mr. Coffee" is the kind of guy that can eat and eat and eat and never gain an ounce. I am already back below my pre pregnancy weight, but still working on the last 67lbs since I started this whole mommy thing. We all have different needs and desires for meals, so I have become an amature nutritionist. "Mr. Coffee" laughs at me because I know exactly what the kids ate and how much and if they need more veggies or not. I have to sneak in the veggies for "Mr. Coffee," he does NOT like veggies, except corn, soft cooked carrots, and french green beans. I finally figured out how to feed us. I make double the "normal amount" he eats half, and the rest of us divide the other half. :) The great thing is, I can cook up a storm and make everyone else eat what I just can taste.
