I will not eat them in a house, I will not eat them with a mouse . . .
It took Ella 3 hours of whiney and asking for any other food under the sun before she would take 1 bite of steak and corn. The house rule is you have to eat a bite and if you really don’t like it you can have something simple like eggs, yogurt or fruit to eat instead. But you do not get to order mac and cheese or pancakes. Mommy and Daddy are not short order cooks. We listened to 3 hours of “I want a hot dog, I want fruit snacks” before she got hungry enough to eat the bite of steak and corn I had saved for her. And after she ate it she said “I like steak”. So in honor of her dinner behaviour we read “Green Eggs and Ham” before bed. Which was literally right after she ate dinner at 8:00.
