Aaron vs. Food
If I have said it once, I have said it FIFTY ( NOT fitty or fiddy, but FIF-TY times) "Aaron, eat."
Every night this is what we go through. This same face. He always say he doesn't like it. He wants me to make chicken nuggets for dinner every night, but that is not gonna happen. It doesn't matter what I make, he says he doesn't like it. Truth is, he does like it, it's just not what he wants. He ends up eating everything without gagging on anything in dislike.
Tonight was especially a struggle, since I have made spaghetti many, many times, and he always eats it fine. But not tonight. Usually I can say, "you want a salad or do you want_________?" Fill in the blank with whatever I made that night. He will gobble up his food cuz he definitely doesn't want a salad. I made no salad tonight, so I couldn't offer him that tonight. Anyhow....who won this fight? Aaron or the food? Did he eat it? Did I give in and let him go to bed hungry? Or did he have to sit there and finish it?
