Have I told you that the Bug is a picky eater? I have? Well it is getting on my nerves! As of today, he eats PB&J with no crusts, French toast with no crusts, pancakes, bagels with cream cheese, pasta with parmesean, granola bars, all types of crackers and chips, yogurt (but only the white kind), applesauce, some kinds of cheese and dried fruit. Oh, he does it all sorts of sweets. It is just plain ridiculous. Basically give him a simple carb and top it with a fat and he is good.
I know that I am partially to blame because I allow him to be this way, but I honestly don't know what I am supposed to do. I have tried everything (I think). I have bribed. I have negotiated. I have been kind. I have tried to talk it out. I have tried being firm. I have gotten angry. I have gotten frustrated, and I have done the time-out thing! It's really frustrating. Do I sound like I should be on an infomercial before they tell you how to stop picky eating forever? They could so choose him to be their case study!
I think I need to make some changes around here. The Food Revolution was a partial success. It stopped most of the bad behaviors, like throwing food, but it has done nothing to change the fact that his pickiness is just getting obnoxious. I have stopped making a seperate dinner for him, he can have what we're having, or not. His choice. Tonight we had beef stew, corn muffins, I added cut up apples for the boys. He ate a corn muffin.
Suggestions? Let me have them? Even you, the people who read my blog but never comment, I know you are there and I need you! Tell me what to do! Even if you don't tell me what to do tell me something. Please?! I'll give a Reece's Cup if you just type one little word! Oops there I go again!
