Part of our conversation at dinner tonight...
Moana: "Are these chicken nuggets?"
Me: "No. It's mahi mahi. Moana, where have you seen chicken nuggets?" (I'm wracking my brain trying to remember the last time I've even seen a chicken nugget? It's been at least 8 years I'd think?)
Me: "Have you ever eaten a chicken nugget?"
Me: "Good. We don't like chicken nuggets." (I'm indoctrinating my daughter.)
Scott: "Chicken nuggets are yucky. Chicken nuggets aren't food." (In good news, Scott and I think alike.)
Moana: "But Kekoa likes chicken nuggets!"
Ah ha! So that's where she's seen chicken nuggets. Pre-school lunch. And now I can just picture the conversation that's going to occur next time Moana is at school and some kid opens his lunch box and pulls out chicken nuggets... Moana is going to say something like My mommy says chicken nuggets are yucky! Lol. And the teachers are all going to roll their eyes and remember that Moana has the crazy mommy who comes to pick her up with that weird pink tape on her calf.
I used the leftover brown sticky rice tonight to make rice cakes with scrambled eggs and chicken (real chicken!) from the Feed Zone cookbook (awesome!) so that's what Moana is going to pull out of her lunch box tomorrow. She's probably the one who gets made fun of at school. Today she had steamed beets and zucchini along with the leftover turkey shepherds pie (again Feed Zone) I made last night. And strawberries for dessert. She ate it all!
Moana's school pictures came in today... this is the spring version. I bought the fall pictures and wasn't going to spend more money on spring pictures too but those photo companies have a smart game plan. I mean, they take these super cute pictures of your kid and then print them out for you... how in the world was I going to opt out of buying this one? I'm a sucker. But she is darn cute if I say so myself. ;)
