As a Social Mom’s blogger I am being compensated for this post. As always, opinions and thoughts are 100% my own!
Each morning waking up and following a steady routine can be considered slightly chaotic and just a tad bit unorganized around here. This year I have had to get used to going back to work and getting up before the sun completely rises. While it has been a smooth transition for myself, my toddler on the other hand is not the happiest when told to “rise and shine!” At some point I found myself running out of ideas to get her excited and willing to roll out of her comfy bed. For some time chocolate chip pancakes, homemade waffles, and animal shaped toast was good enough. But as many fellow parents may know, toddlers get bored pretty darn quick when it comes to routine! They want something new. They want to try different things. Sometimes they don’t even WANT to eat before school. My daughter has to be the pickiest eater I have ever encountered. It is difficult enough for me to get her to actually consume food, much less enjoy it. It has to be her idea and if it isn’t, well good luck! It‘s much easier for me to get her to drink a big glass of OJ than it is to eat a plate of food. Even at that, she gets tired of the same ol’ juices we have the fridge.
