We did make Daddy a nice big breakfast this morning with Pancakes, eggs, and homegrown bacon. Pancakes are usually round (sometimes we make fun shapes), but the easiest way to cut them up is in a grid pattern. I'm sure anyone who has ever cut up pancakes for a small child knows what I'm talking about. Due to Owen's eating issues and his shakiness from all the medications he's on we still feed him most things that aren't finger food. He has so much trouble keeping food on his spoon or fork that he becomes frustrated and will stop eating before he's done. We also still feed Brenna excessively messy things that I don't feel like cleaning up after. Because I'm a lazy Mom, I often feed them off of the same plate. I'm trying to break myself of that habit, since we won't be able to do that once Owen starts the Ketogenic diet. So I was feeding Owen his pancake and I got to one of the little pieces at the corner. I brought it toward Owen's mouth and he protested loudly " That's a Brenna bite! Brenna is small. I'm big. I get big bites, Brenna gets small bites." He was quite adamant that that little corner piece was NOT his bite. I guess I'm going to have to learn a new way to cut his pancakes up.
