It Has Begun...

Last week, my sister wrote on her blog that her son was so mad after not getting a popsicle. This is pretty similar...I guess the cousins think alike.

Scarlett hasn't been a good eater since giving up baby food. She would eat any and every baby food, but once we started her on table foods she pretty much turned in to the pickiest eater in the world! It's very frustrating because Brody and I are not picky. I don't have recent shots of her eating, but you can see from the picture how many of our meals are spent...I think this is when she was one...she's almost three and it hasn't gotten much better.


Occasionally, I let her choose what she wants for dinner, but I'm really trying to get her to eat whatever it is that I fix because I don't want to be a short order cook, spending all night in the kitchen. So...tonight it was a macaroni beef casserole. Most kids would probably love it...it has macaroni and cheese in it! Well, not Miss Priss. She sat at the table, with her arms crossed and her bottom lip turned completely out in a pout. I ignored it for a while, and finally gave in and asked her what was wrong. She said "I mad". I asked her what she was mad at and she said, "I mad at Mommy. I wanna popsicle". I told her that I was sorry she was mad, but that she could not have a popsicle until she ate her dinner. Eventually, reluctantly, she gave in and ate her dinner so that she could have dessert. The girl is not even three and she's giving me a taste of what it will be like to have her mad at me!

Tonight Darby didn't eat her dinner. After playing with a friend for a few hours she started asking for a snack. We told her she could have her chicken that was leftover from dinner. Her response? "Chicken is not a snack." She's quite the argumentative and opinionated little thing. I sense another lawyer is on the way in our family! :)

She cracks me up when she makes her "pouty" face when you make her eat what she doesn't want. Helarious!!!!

I'm so glad you left a message; it's wonderful to hear from you. Normally, I do a much better job of posting, but it's been a rough month! Scarlet is beautiful. Do you know what the new one is going to be? I'll link you to my page so that I can keep up with everything.
