Time Out for a Healthy Breakfast…

In this video, Malachy requested that I put it on TimeOutDad, so how could I refuse? πŸ˜‰ Shien has exposed him to so many delicious meals and varieties of food. One of the consequences, however, is that he will then have cravings or request things on the fly all the time. Some mornings, when we don’t have what he wants, he’ll have a mini-breakdown or throw a tantrum because Shien can’t make what he wants. Sometimes it’s because she doesn’t have the time to prepare what he wants or because we simply don’t have what he wants readily available. Just yesterday, I heard him asking Shien for cheese curds! I don’t even know what that is! (Actually Shien just told me that he’s been asking for it for a couple of weeks, now.) When did he last have it? He had it in the Fall! His memory is UNBELIEVABLE!
I came home today and no one was home. Where did they go? Guess? I called Shien up and they were out buying cheese curds! Ai ya! πŸ˜‰ Shien told me the guy selling the cheese said it was nice to see someone with so much enthusiasm about cheese. Malachy was so excited and jumping for joy for cheese curds!

I can’t wait for him to be able to cook on his own! πŸ˜‰ Mommy and Daddy can wake up one day to Malachy’s creations… YUMMY! πŸ™‚

  1. I am vexed by parents who put their kids on public display. This is the classic highly-prized “trophy child” syndrome exhibited by post-modern parents, exactly the same as the parents of Abby Sunderland, another highly prized trophy child.

    I wrote about this on my blog. Parents like you are a real problem for the rest of us who are more appropriately low-key about their children. The only thing you will accomplish is producing is an overindulged child with an exaggerated view of himself by the time he hits adolescence. He will think that everything he does is special and important and will be then be rendered demoralized when the rest of the world doesn’t agree.
