Dinner in our house used to be hectic and blah. The food would come out of a box and it was not healthy for us. Now that I am home, I cook everyday. I am trying new recipes every week and making our meals, healthy and enjoyable. For some.
I like for us to sit at the table with our feet in front of us and our butts in the chair. Alanna on the other hand likes to stand or if she does decides to sit, her feet to the side. We constantly struggle about the way she sits at the table. Once she gives up and is sitting nicely then she starts on the food. "I'm not hungry, I'm to cold" are constant excuses in our house. I have been making her sit at the table with us until we are done, and if she doesn't eat, then well she doesn't eat until breakfast. There are nights where I feel like the wicked witch and other nights while sitting there Alanna will decide to eat her food and realize she likes it. Am I being to harsh? Should I let her eat something before bed? When I was growing up we ate or didn't and then maybe we could have a snack later...It wasn't to strict. I feel though with Alanna I have to be strict. She has that type of personality that she needs the structure..Where like Hannah she would be okay. Any advice?
