I am the mother of a picky eater. I gave up trying to fight with Wy to at least try what was on his plate, so he usually just has a bite and some milk. As such he wakes up hungry in the morning.....here's how it went today.
W: "Mommy I'm hungry!"
Me: " I know, I'm cooking breakfast now."
W: "But I want coo coo cocoa bugs!" (cocoa puffs)
Me: "No cereal, you'll wait until I finish cooking."
W: "Mommy! I'm really really hungry!"
Me: "Do you know why you're so hungry? Because you didn't eat squat last night for dinner."
W: "But Mommy, I don't like squat."
