Danny's eating habits are driving me crazy. Since he was a baby he's dictated what and how he eats. At 6 months old he flatly refused to let me feed him with a spoon so I haven't since. He feeds himself and must have certain utensils (he'll demand a fork or spoon for each meal). The big thing is that he WILL NOT sit at the table and eat lunch or dinner. It doesn't matter what the food is - he won't even try it. The only thing that results in peace for everyone is to eventually let him down from the table. I have tried all sorts of things and yes, talked to his pediatrician. Those of you that know me know that I'm not the kind of mum to let a 2-year old get the better of me but he'd rather starve than eat at that table and I'm beyond patient. Tonight he ate a packet of peanut M&Ms on the way home from the supermarket just so that I knew he'd eaten something. I know I have to make him eat what we eat or go hungry but I don't have the mettle or the energy to fight this thing right now. This is how stupid it is - I seriously wondered if the M&Ms had nutritional value! What am I doing?????
Thank God it's weekend!! Yea! We've got lots planned in the garden (we got a new grill) and we've got a B-B-Q to go to tomorrow. And right now, I'm really enjoying the kids. They are both so funny and so lovable that it's hard to be anything but cheerful.
