On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights we feed the kids at our "normal" family dinner time of 5:00 and then Rich and I eat later when the kids are in bed.

This works out well for our family. Rich and I eat foods the kids wouldn't normally eat -- spicy foods like Veggie Curry and Fajitas. Plus it's like a "date" only we don't have to leave the house, hire a babysitter, plus, we can BOTH enjoy a glass (or two) of wine and not have to worry about driving home.

On these nights the kids also get a "treat" meal -- something Rich and I don't eat or something special for them. It's always an "easy" meal: chicken nuggets, scrambled eggs, hot dogs, etc...

Well, apparently, I'm falling down as a parent.

Today Josh wanted Spaghetti-O's & Meatballs and Sam wanted Mac & Cheese.

Now bear in mind they ASKED for this meal.

I served it and wouldn't you know I had to FORCE them to eat it!

Josh told me half way through his meal he'd rather have Salmon on Friday nights!

  1. Salmon? I can not for the life of me get my kids to try fish. When they were younger, they would eat fish-sticks occassionally.

    When given the choice, my picky eaters usually pick Mac & Cheese of French Toast Sticks.


Yay! Comments! Thanks for letting me know you were here!
