A NEED FOR CAFFEINE

An Apple a Day

Well, the apple the kids ate for lunch would make the doctor faint!  Themes are back from the Muffin Tin Mom, and today was "ABC".  I also thought it was numbers, but that's next week.  Oops.  Oh well!

I decided to cut foods into shapes of things from A-F, and then have 2 groups of 1, 2 groups of 2, and 2 groups of 3.  Before eating, I had Cocoa help me figure out what letter each one started with by first listening to the sound.  She got about half of them, which for being three, I'm happy with that! :)

A - Apple-shaped chocolate chip cookie - 1
B - Bear, boat, and butterfly shaped cheese (kind of hard to see) - 3
C - Cat shaped tortillas - 2
D - Dinosaur shaped PB&J - 1
E - Elephant shaped cantaloupe - 3
F - Flower shape cut into the middle of a cucumber - 2

There aren't any pictures of the kids eating today because as soon as I put their meals in front of them, I had to scoot to a doctor's appointment.  My mother-in-law stayed and enjoyed watching the kids eat their lunch.  :)
