    Wheat Germ Mush

    Since I am the professional housewife these days, I make Toby breakfast if he wakes up before noon. That’s our deal. Before you say, “He sleeps till noon!!!” remember that he doesn’t go to bed usually until four or five in the morning. Sometimes he goes to bed just as I’m waking up.

    So anyway I make him breakfast because I’m nice like that. And on days he sleeps past noon, I’m mean and make him fend for himself. I can’t wait around all day for him to wake up.

    I usually make eggs. Scrambled or an omelet. But on every other day he requests Wheatena, which is hot cereal made out of wheat husks. He thinks it’s healthy. I think it is disgusting. It looks like saw dust stew.

    By the looks of Baby Bug’s facial expression, I think she agrees with me. Hopefully she’ll like rice cereal. The doctor said that we’ll talk about rice cereal at our next appointment that is coming up soon. I’m kind of excited for her. Rice cereal!

    In other news: Baby Bug didn’t really like the Baby Einstein movie. So I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t drop a chunk of change on the box set. I checked out the Bach one and it was kinda slow. She got bored when they showed instruments on the screen and they didn’t do anything. But when there was this big wooden piece of cheese with holes in it and a mouse puppet popped through the hole…she was all wide eyes and big smiles. She’s so smart. Everybody knows mouse puppets are way more fun than trumpets and keyboards that don’t do anything.

    Maybe she’ll like the others better. A while back I watched a farm animal one with my niece when I was up north at my no-cal sister-in-law’s. I think she might like that one better. It had lots of cute animals making animal noises. I even found it mildly amusing.

    And yes, of course, all things in moderation.
