Fridge Life - WW

The top shelf in our refrigerator is designated for Monkey and Monkeyland equipment.



He could care less about baby food, as evidenced by the tubs and jars of uneaten, unappetizing baby food. I don’t know why I even bother to buy it. I suppose I have been brainwashed by all those Gerber baby food commercials.

The only things on this shelf that he enjoys are the sippy cups and my breast milk… and of course, the French Vanilla Coffeemate. He’s always asking - very nicely - for a drip in his cup o’milk in the morning.

my boys hated the gerber food...yet for some reason I still bought it... you would think that by my third child I would get the hint!

mmmm...a picky eater?

blueviolet said...

My kids ate baby food with glee! What's wrong with them?

Buckeroomama said...

Haha, those funnels bring back memories. :)

Z still not weaned yet... and showing no signs of doing so any time soon! Ugh.

I remember those days! how I miss them =/

kiddiescorner said...

I don't blame him for not liking them

Kristin said...

don't you love it- can't eat it but can't throw it away! Stopping by from 5M4M- happy WW!

Bonnie said...

Too funny about the coffeemate.

Skip the prebought stuff and get yourself a baby safe feeder...you can put any kind of food in there but start with grapes or watermelon..they love it!!

Check out my WW...kind of reminds me of that chocolate cake you were talking about on twitter...the facial expression after you cheat and eat it.

Octamom said...

Hee hee! We have one who likes a little French Vanilla in his sippy cup as well!

Blessings!

Oh that's funny! Maybe he'll run a specialty coffee house chain when he grows up!

Veronica Lee said...

My boys grew up on Gerber and Heinz!!

ModernMom said...

I was always jealous of those ready to go stage 2 Gerber meals/snacks. (We didn't have those in Canada until recently) I loved our trips to Florida so I could buy my Monkey every kind under the sun....then she rejected every single one in favour of whatever was on my plate:)

Brenda said...

Sweet memories, those days pass just too fast!

Rob said...

My youngest never was into the Gerber type baby food either. Not sure why as my other 2 kids were.

Happy WW!

T~T said...

yep - my little one refused to eat baby food AT ALL ever! she loved real food though

Bethany said...

Just stopping by from SITS. You have a REALLY cute blog!! :)

Mommy24cs said...

Hubby loves the French Vanilla. Me, I'm a Vanilla Caramel type of girl :o)

My kids didn't care much for the baby food either. I think I just had fun picking out the different dinners. They sound yummy anyway lol.

Happy said...

Baby food is pretty tasteless so can't say I blame him! Gotta love some French Vanilla creamer! So funny!

Kimberly said...

Emilio eats the gerber stuff, I haven't tried the little meals yet though. He is a little piggy and wants to eat everything! Thankfully he now starting to accept whole milk. He has been very picky in the milk department and its has been driving me nuts! I wanted to stop breastfeeding at nine months but he refused any other option. Only two more weeks to his first birthday and then I finally get my body all back to myself! Yay!

Stacie said...

My little girl doesn't like baby food anymore either. She would much rather have what we are eating. LOL

Shelly said...

I remember those days. Now my son is trying to eat pretty much anything and everything in the fridge.

Staci said...

Mine hated those Gerber ones too! And I of course continued to buy them as well.

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Gerber bananas, still my favorite. Okay... that was a secret I just let out!

Helene said...

My kids were never wild about those Gerber graduate meals either and I have to say that some of them did look pretty nasty. After awhile, I finally started to take whatever Tim and I were eating for dinner and I'd just cut it into very small bites for them and they preferred that. Wish I would've figured that out instead of spending so much money on those ready-made containers!

Kristen Andrews said...

I have a picky eater too, and am outnumbered hubby is picky too but Will is getting better he ate hummus the other day and liked it!

Sweet Serendipity said...

My daughter was the worst. Would not eat baby food. Period. Hated it all. She's still a picky eater. And yup...never met a babe that turned down breastmilk, lol.

Oh how I wish you could be in the stands stomping your feet. I will giggle endlessly as they call my name imagining you!!

BTW LOVE THE PHOTO!!! My fridge looked like that too and I gave up on the baby food. They loved the steamed and pureed organic stuff, go figure! So I ended up donating a lot of our unopened baby food to the local food bank! Kudos! Happy WW!

BK said...

I believe you just want the best for his health and that was why you bought the Gerber. :)

I thought we all fed our baby Gerber food because it is un-American not to.

I've been brainwashed by the media again, I suppose. :)

Princess Nagger seemed to like only certain types of baby food - you know, like the desserts... ;)

She also LOVES my french vanilla coffee creamer... :)

Happy WW a day late! :)

Alicia said...

I'm pretty sure my last three kids did not even have baby food at all!!!! LOL!
