Who Else Wants an End to Food Fights and Frustration?
I’m knee-deep in the middle of the #pickykidlife.
I’ve been here for more than 15 years, but every single day these #pickykids of mine move a little further ahead into adventurous eating.
My eldest is truly adventurous now. He’s almost all the way there. My second son…well, let’s just say he still has some distance to travel.
I do what I do to not only survive but also to thrive- to learn how to get through this stage of parenthood with the most happiness possible and to help those other mamas of picky kids out there thrive through this stage as well.
There’s so much joy to be found when we’re not all fighting over food.
Let’s find that joy and put our focus back on the things that make motherhood more wonderful– the giggles, the games, the jokes, the fun.
Let’s face it, no two kids are alike. They are all contrary, unique, wonderful… and infuriating. If we can look back on this time and know we did everything we could to help them grow up into thriving and independent adults, we know we did it the right way.
Let’s not just survive together, let’s thrive together.
Let’s figure out a way to help our kids grow up into all their potential, full of life and energy, full of all the promise of a healthy and successful future. I’m in it with you, and I’m here to help.
The Picky Kid Mom Chronicles
So how do you deal with (that sort) of picky kid behaviour? Generally, in my home, I do nothing, really. I remember hearing that my brother chased his kid around the house with a carrot in hand. Not me. I’d rather really enjoy eating my dinner than come back to it later, cranky and bitter because it’s cold and dried out.
Watermelon is one of the things we look forward to every summer. Both boys do too…but my second son is still selective in how he chooses to eat his.
Covid-19 is certainly something remarkable to bear witness to!
I woke up today thinking this thought: A healthy body is a happy one. A happy body is a healthy one.
