Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on November 25, 2012

Friday is Pizza Day at school. Yay for pizza!

That means one day when I don’t have to make a sandwich or a pita. Where I don’t have to debate with my child on what she is willing to eat for lunch. One more day where I don’t feel guilty that the only thing that Diva girl will eat is some variation of bread with cheese. Toasted bread with cheese; toasted bagel with cheese; pita with cheese and lettuce inside….at least the last one has something green! When she was younger we thought she was lactose intolerant like her father and she does seem to have issues with yogurt occasionally, but she definitely has no problem with cheese!

If it’s pasta for dinner it just better have cheese on it! Oh and by the way, she’d better be able to see it. So while she prefers melted cheese on her rigatoni or penne, it had better be enough that the noodles have changed colour! FYI – cheddar only please! Diva girl is not fond of ‘white cheese’, no matter how melted…thank you very much!

But I guess I’m pretty lucky since other parents have told me of their challenges in getting their kids to eat. One son will only eat beef patties; another child refuses to eat sandwiches of any kind. Another one of my friends has a child that won’t eat fruit at school but tons of fruit at home. At least Diva girl will eat fruit and even some veggies. So all in all, cheese every day isn’t such a bad thing.

  1. Finicky, picky kids are all the same it seems. “PLEASE eat” *shakes* head “Please” we implore..nuh. I understand your frustration – I had with my girls – now though they eat practically everything..though we haven’t jumped over the brussel sprouts barrier yet 🙂
