More fat! More fat!!

Today is my mama's birthday. I was trying to write some sappy poetry for her, but people keep shoving plush poodles in my face and demanding mukiks. Or climbing on my arms saying watch this and doing some pretty impressive superhero arm moves. This kind of activity KILLS my muse. Sorry, Mama.

In other news, R2 is losing weight. This is alarming, since he weighed a little more than a grasshopper to begin with. At 9.5 he had finally broken 40 pounds... we got the new booster seat and everything. And then he had the seizure and got emotional distress and now he's back down to like 36. Grr. So I have put a call in to a nutritionist, and we will be meeting with them and making a plan. In the meantime, I am consulting the Google.

So I am working on increasing the caloric content of his meals. I mix butter in with everything, and I make him eat it all, even if I have to spoonfeed him. Also, I bought a lot of high-fat snacks, but good high fats, like avocados and nuts. Oh, and I'm making him drink 2 Pediasures a day, which are about 200 calories each. It's an interesting project. Oddly, he is already looking a little healthier after only 3 days of this.

One problem: I want to eat it all. Whoda thunk that my favorite foods also happen to be high fat? I'm a shrimp, I know. But I'm getting a little meaty here, what with the cold and the baking and so on. I can't go work out, because I am a coldaphobic. (sidenote: when I googled coldaphobic to make sure I wasn't calling myself something obscene, I found this:Coulrophobia: an abnormal or exaggerated fear of clowns. Good to know.)

  1. I know he likes to be spoon-fed! He will keep taking it in as long as you shovel!

  2. That was me the cow. mama

  3. why is is that what we do for the benefit of the children around us causes our personal downfall? Is this when God asks us to develop our fruit of self-control? I thought that only applied to putting down the book by midnight so I can get enough sleep.

    Is this what I have to look forward to w/ kids? Can't wait...

  4. Thanks, Birch! I can always count on you.

  5. o m gosh

    weird al
    i used to like him
    used to,
    i had a friend in hong kong who introduced him to me.
    couldn't help but laugh
    in spite of my sanctified self

    jess, i am coldophobic too.

    i do remembering that when kitten was little, i was told that FAT was the single most important thing for the development of her brain. so, you must be onto something.

    my kitten will NOT eat avocado, the love fruit from California.
    But i can disquise it in cilantro dip or items that pass for chips dips.

    nuts are good too. what about a banana smoothie with lots of fattenign yogurt and a tablespoonful of coconut or coconut oil or olive oil? That would be nourishing and delish!
