Today was back to the WIC office for recertification for LM. I was so glad to see that they not only changed the building but also the way they did things! I was in and out of there in less than an hour...for a full appt that is record setting from what I have experienced! lol! It's a bit quicker because he's foster and we don't have to do the financial stuff, etc, but the new process is so much more efficient. That makes me super happy!!! Today I got the comment "I wish more moms were like you. You are rare!" Why did I get such a wonderful compliment?? LOL!!! I feed my child fruits and vegetables EVERY day! (yes, sometimes the veggies are hidden in things like spaghetti sauce, but he gets them!) :) It's quite sad that most people don't give their child the best start possible nutritionally. It is the basis for healthy eating habits for the rest of their lives. Maybe America wouldn't be so obese huh? Then I was sitting in the lobby and saw the cutest baby. The Mom was speaking to another woman and I overheard that he was 3 months...awwww! Then she said that she fed him stage 2 baby foods and he was eating cornbread the other day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3 months old!!!!!!!!!! WHAT????? At 3 months old he wears the same size diaper as LM! I think the education piece of WIC is missing. Of course maybe the women just will do whatever they want no matter what they know to be best, but maybe there needs to be a revamp there too!
