The Battle

Here is the deal.  Charlotte is not a good eater, and I do try to pick my battles with this carefully.   However, she is also a little stubborn and if she knows it is something I want her to do she does not always want to do it.

So I made her some scrabbled eggs, which she asked for,  but then when I put them in front of her she would not touch them.  After 15 minutes, I got out the camera to share with you her tactics to get out of it.

Here is the bite she agreed to take for the picture.  She is watching herself take a bite.

After this one bite, she would not take another.

This is for sure my favorite face.  it is hard to tell but you can kind of see her arms are folded.  When she doesn't know what else to do she folds her arms and makes this face.
 I finally just turned my back and started doing the dishes, she was still making lots of noise and trying to get out of her seat.  She grabbed the bowl and was ready to throw it on the floor when I caught her and put it back in front of her.
 Temper?  Do you think she has a little temper?

 Finally after 45 minutes and me not talking to her or looking at her for 10 minutes she ate the whole bowl.  I asked for 3 bites, she deciede she could eat it all.

I think this might have been my greatest accomplishment for the week.
