Breakfast of Champions

So this is the picture that did it.  I've been fighting the bloggy urge for months now.  I've been stubbornly holding my ground no matter what Kate said.  I've been feeling guilty that I haven't done a good job of keeping up with Molly's baby book.  I've used every excuse I could come up with to avoid starting a blog. And then this happened.  I had to share this one with everyone.  It's just too good.  And here's the story:

First breakfast: snack bar & milk
Second breakfast: raisins, peaches, whole wheat crackers, and milk
Third breakfast: more crackers
Fourth breakfast: eggs, bacon, milk & Merrells.

She'd eaten everything else in the house, okay?  We were out of food.  I hadn't been to the store yet, all right???  Nothing would satisfy her appetite!  I was at my wit's end... (sob, sob)

Okay, not really.  Molly really was eating Fourth breakfast (you would too if you could get away with it!).  She was wearing her shoes with her pj's and the next thing I knew her shoe was on her breakfast tray.  I love her precious little face and big, innocent, blue eyes, the fact that she's holding her fork and looks to be enjoying a perfectly normal breakfast.  And yes.  I totally let her eat the rest of her food with her shoe on her tray.  

Welcome to the pile up...

Shannon: I don't want to get married.
Kate: Try it, you'll like it.
Shannon: (years later) You were right.

Shannon: I don't want to have babies.
Kate: Try it, you'll like it.
Shannon: (years later) You were right.

Shannon: I don't want to join Facebook.
Kate: Try it, you'll like it.
Shannon: (months later) You were right.

Do you see where I'm going with this??? It won't be long before you will be searching for "blog-worthy" pictures and stories. Trust me on this.

I tried to follow your blog, but you don't have little button thingy. Help me help you, Kate...

And by the way, smarty pants, I remember someone who DID NOT want to go to a party a few years ago. I said, try it, you'll have fun! And then Andy happened. So. There.

Shannon, I am way impressed with the blog!! And, I love the pic of Molly, her b-fast and her cute little, pink Merrell. Molly is not alone in her passion of wearing shoes with PJs. Need to get the tots together soon!!

Kate said...

So, what, that's like 4 against 1? Whatever, I am still winning.
