Fortune Cookies

So I have issues about Evie's weight. And she must be catching on.

We were just having lunch, and as usual Evie had only eaten the low calorie stuff. She polished off an entire clementine and a side salad with three artichoke hearts. At least she managed to eat a piece of cheese.

Then she noticed a fortune cookie from last night's dinner. This is how negotiations went:

Evie: I have this cookie?
Me: I want you to eat some hot dog first.
Evie: The cookie will give me calories.

I gave her the cookie.

Hey - at least she knows you want her to eat. Unfortunately, fortune cookies don't have that many calories. Maybe you could get the ones that come dipped in white chocolate?

Mmmm...meanwhile I (who do not need more calories) have been craving hot dogs lately.

that is awesome! Although, I am still impressed that she was eating artichoke hearts. I think I would fall over if Sweet Pea ever put one in his mouth. lol

What a healthy little eater! I know you need her to eat higher calorie foods, just like I need my 2 year old to eat healthy foods! lol
