Picky Eaters - here's what I do...

"Mommy, take the skin off!" That's what I hear from my little one.  The skin is the crust of the bread. It actually is also the casing of a hot dog or the cover of a book.  NO SKIN! I've always been told that the nutrients are in the skin, but of course I take off the skin.  She needs to eat! If there is any truth to the "you're kids will give you double the trouble you gave your parents", then it's showing itself with my kid's eating habits. I like most kids didn't want to eat veggies (or soup, or beans or oatmeal), but I loved meat and potatoes.  My kids are SO difficult!  They are both thin and dinner time is a real challenge.  In order to have inner peace and to be sure they grow I've had to become a sneaky mom.  Although I do take off the skin of the bread, I put it back in the sandwich.  You can't tell when there's peanut butter and jelly or melted cheese.  We make soup about every other week and puree it.  Little do my little ones know that they are eating ALL kinds of veggies.  I'm actually going to start using some of the soup broth to boil chicken in and use as the liquid when making rice.  I'm no doctor (obviously), but I've had to get creative with this liquid gold containing so many vitamins.  If any of you have any tricks to share...please do!

PS I've tried the cover in cheese thing...she just dips her finger in the cheese and pushes the broc and other veggies aside.

I'm SO honored to have received the Liebster Blog Award!!!

So I started this blog on December 1, 2011 and it has rolled out fast and furious.  Starting off with an amazing giveaway of a signed copy of Courtney Dial's book, Push-Up Pops was a great way to share with all that Inspiring Giggles is here and has some great things to share.  I hope to share my party inspiration, DIY's, amazing giveaway events, other amazing party people, tips, and maybe a little about myself. : )


When I got a FB message saying I was awarded the Liebster Blog award I was so surprised and honestly I did a little dance. : )  I'm SO grateful for all the support I've receive being a newbie!  And, I'm absolutely so honored that Debbie from Party Patisserie not only reads my blog, but that she thought of Inspiring Giggles when sharing the Liebster Blog Award!



After looking into it this award I learned that is passed on to upcoming bloggers that have about 200 blog followers or less and who deserve more blog recognition.  There are rules to this and this is how they go: 

1. Thank the person who gave the award and link back to their blog.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know!
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog post.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!
Liebster is a German word meaning ‘dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome’. 


Now it's my turn to share the Liebster Blog award and though 5 spots are not enough I know you'll absolutely love the following (I sure do!):


The Petite Soiree
BellaGrey Designs
Creative Designs by Toni
Amy's Party Ideas
La Belle Parties


Thank you, thank you, thank you all for taking time out of a very busy day to read what I have to share.  I'm really grateful, flattered and humbled!  Stay tuned, more to come! : )
