- It's too hot
- It got cold
- I don't like these foods if they're touching each other
- This is the wrong kind of chicken - I only like other kinds of chicken
- My tummy is only hungry for desert
The list could go on forever. Or there are the moments when there's absolutely no reason to be offered, and so they just break down in either tears or hysterics or the silent treatment or a stare-down with the floor beneath their feet. So I just was hoping to hear that I'm not alone - that other people's kids are really as difficult as mine can be. Just a little bit of 'me too' would go a long way at a time like this! LOL!
Oh, and while I'm at it, I'll share something random that Sebastian said - which is totally unrelated to the eating issue. He and Isaac were 'discussing' something, and out of who-knows-where Sebastian says, "Isaac, attack the problem, not the person." I had to laugh just a little...wonder where he ever learned that? And I wonder even more why he thought it pertained to that particular moment with his brother. ??? Kids are just too funny.
