How To Say No

Audrey has been bombarded with choices recently. We have been traveling to see her father, my family, and my in-laws. With every trip comes a new dinner routine. She has learned how her daddy eats away from home and how each set of grandparents eat. With my in-laws she tried a number of new meals. In order to keep her from being completely upset for every dinner I decided to let her make her favorite, Pineapple Not-Upside-Down Muffins.

But she had to take a bite of egg salad sandwich in order to be able to have muffins. She was not interested in trying the egg salad sandwich. She loves eggs. I had to say no. No, she could not make muffins. It was hard for me to do because I enjoy baking with my girls. She finally decided to try the egg salad sandwich.

She liked the sandwich. I should add that this method only works some of the time. But I am happy when it does.

  1. Those look yummy ... food battles are so interesting. But I've been so pleased with how many foods we've gotten our kids to enjoy. Looks like you've found a way that works for you.
