Patience usually comes easy to me but I'm finding myself frustrated. Two things:
1. My kids get a kick out of gagging themselves. They literally put their fingers down their throats and make this awful bulimic like sound. They've been doing it for a few months and show no signs of slowing down. I thought it was just a phase. At first I wouldn't react because I thought they were doing it to get my attention. Then I tried calmly taking their fingers out and giving a disapproving face/tone. They don't care. One starts and the other one copies like it's a game. It is so gross.
2. Mealtime with Maxwell is not fun. He is a super picky eater. I know twins are two separate people but it's hard not to compare his eating with Ella's. These days little peanut literally eats twice what her brother does. The 'finger food' I put on his tray goes immediately onto the floor. So I try putting down small amounts at a time. He does better when I feed him with a spoon, but he only wants to eat things with no texture. We're fine if I feed him yogurt or sweet potatoes. But he can't live on that alone. Right? I've been pretty successful with keeping them on the same schedule with eating and sleeping, but this fixing double meals is driving me crazy.
Any suggestions? Ideas? Witty one liners for the people staring at us in the store when my kids have their fingers down their throats?
