Quoting katxo:" Honey, I know exactly how you feel, DS is exact same way and he will be 4 soon. He drives me mad. I couldn't ... [snip!] ... the other night.. Like really son, really? It's mashed potatoes!!! Hid diet sucks and he will refuse to eat. Drives me mad!"
It drives me nuts because my daughter is a wonderful eater! She LOVES to eat bell peppers and carrots for snacks. No matter what I give him, he shakes his head and pushes the plate away. And he was really underweight for a while, and now he's like above the 95% but it doesn't seem like he eats that much. He just doesn't eat very balanced things. And he screams about everything, not cry, but scream at the top of his lungs, so I end up giving in and I know I shouldn't.
Sigh. I'm that parent I always swore I wouldn't be.
