Just Another Day

Not sure what to write about today. I said I was going to keep up with this blog so here I am pecking away.

The girls went to school today. Took them around 9 today..they had had enough of Mom for awhile and were being their little defiant selves this morning. Came home, exercised and cleaned up around the house.

My mom called and I talked with her for awhile. This is Veteran's Day and my best friend here had the day off. (she teaches school) Went over to her house and we went out for lunch. Had mexican food and a good long talk. She always helps recharge me and gives me some good adult time.

After lunch I went to the grocery store and then ran some other errands. Went and picked up the girl around 4. Came home and had a typical evening with Brad and the girls.

We are trying to get them to start eating what he and I are having for dinner. They are definitely old enough to eat the same things we have. They are just really really fighting it. It is a horrible power struggle. They absolutely refuse to try anything new. I make very kid friendly meals too. It's so crazy.

Macaroni and cheese, corn, green beans, tacos, sloppy joes, mashed potatoes, my little one won't even eat bread with butter....
I don't know what it's going to take to get them to try anything new.

We will keep struggling through this and they'll get tired of being so stubborn and get curious.

Hang Tough girlie! You should do a sticker chart protocol for the positive things that they do including eating dinner and behaving nicely. Set an x amount of stickers to earn and give them a choice to pick something out of a 'treasure box'. The dollar store can be a great and inexpensive place to find rewards for good behavior! You could always threaten them with 'mean aunt leahe' to come back. hahahaha
Much Love to you!!!
