Meal Time Antics


In the evenings my husband and I sit down with our son for dinner. And as always, my kid gives me every excuse under the sun to avoid eating, "I'm not hungry!",(20mins after sitting down)"Its still too hot!" etc. However, every once in a while he comes up with a new one that has us cracking up.

-During one particular meal of Cuban Steak and Rice he tried his usual routine. Well, I ignored it and carried on a different conversation. A couple minutes later my son's plate gets pushed aside, and as I turned to look at him, he very loudly dropped his fork onto the table with a BIG exageratted frown on his face. "Ummmm,What do you think your doing?" I asked. In the saddest possible voice he said "I just can't do it mommy...I just can't." Naturally my reply was "Well, what CAN'T you do exactly?" He looked at me and said "I Can't eat my food because my hands are just to small." Needless to say he was very dissapointed that his Grand scheme didn't work. lol

-Another night, another dinner and yet another attempt at not eating. This time for dinner I had made Chuck Roast and homemade mashed potatoes. It used to be one of my little man's favorite dishes. However for what ever reason he decided that he was not interested in it anymore. After chastising him about eating his dinner a couple times he wasn't happy. Well, dinner carried on and he still refused to consume anything. So, at this point I scooped up some potato from his plate myself and told him to "open up! Here it comes!" He quickly closed his mouth and started wimpering slumped in his chair with a scared look on his face. "Whats wrong now?" I asked. He said "I don't like it mommy and my mouth is too scared." At that point I was laughing so hard I just gave up and yes, he won. I made him PBnJ instead with that Jelly Fish jelly he likes so much ;)

  8. My girl is going through the same sort of phases. Right now anything that she doesn't want to do "scares" her, and she is a whiz at working up the tears to prove her point.

    Thanks, as always, for the visit! I really appreciate it and love hearing from you.

    Keep us all posted on your son's cute moments. He's so adorable.

  14. My son has recently also tried to not eat some items he always did...so I counter with "Oh it was always one of your favorites before" this seems to do the trick lol!
