Even Steven

Further proving that these two can be polar opposites, Mallory refused to eat any breakfast today and in fact even refused her beloved juice for the first 15 or so minutes of the meal until she finally broke down and had some. She has been a real crankypants this week - maybe a bit overtired, but miserable in general - as Dana put it - "Wow, she's hitting the terrible twos early, isn't she?"

Liam, on the other hand, placed his breakfast order before he went to bed last night. Not only did he want a bowl of hot cereal (oatmeal), he wanted a waffle too. And he almost polished it all off this morning. I swear this boy has had a hollow leg lately and I cringe when I think of what our grocery bills might be like during his teenage years.

(Remember the Seinfeld episode when George had nothing but good luck, Elaine had nothing but bad luck, and Jerry was Even Steven? That was one of my all-time favourites. At least my kids' appetites balance each other out!!)
