fast food.

just a quick post today... even though I should throw in the towel with trying to keep up with posting once a day! Come monday, I'll be pretty busy :)

How often do you get your kids fast food?

I used to avoid it at ALL costs, but lately, with my energy WAY DOWN I've found it much easier to run through the Wendy's drive thru and get Maeve some chicken nuggets. It's so gross- I feel horrible feeding it to her! I mean, did I really sacrifice my boobs for 6 months to give her the best nutritional start possible only to feed her grease now??? Hmmm... anyways, hopefully once the baby gets here and I can get some feeling back in my hips and my energy somewhat returns, I'll find my way to the grocery store and start making some healthier lunches.

So.... answer my question- how often do your kids get fed from the grease pit? :)

Well, Austin isn't really old enough to really eat all sorts of things yet. He is still picky and still getting his teeth in. If we go through the drive thru we get him the manderin(spelling is off, I know) oranges, or something healthier. But he has begged for a fry or two now and then and we do give it to him...maybe twice a month. But when he will eat chicken nuggets, I don't think I will mind giving them to him. Wendy's nuggets are good anyways...at least we know its chicken, unlike mcdonalds. lol I wouldn't feel bad unless its a couple times a week really.

I'd say twice a month, maybe. When we do go we (they, actually) get chicken nuggets and apples with milk. Not too bad I guess. It seemed like the winter we'd go more often because we'd have playdates in the play area...

I wouldn't feel bad. Ty, when he was a kid, ate brownies every morning for breakfast and fast food for lunch and dinner (seriously not kidding) every single day. He's a health nut now :), so I wouldn't be too concerned!

haha well lately its been a FEW times a week! But only recently- like within the past 2 weeks! HAHA that's so bad... but yeah we do the apples or the oranges depending on mcdonalds/wendys. And milk of course. So I guess its not THAT bad- but she does sneak some of my fries in (how can I say no when I'm eating them myself>? :) It's gross I know!

MAYBE every other week. He barely eats it though, drives me bonkers!
