Mealtime has been slightly more trying these days. Not because she doesn’t like the food, but because playtime is more important than sit at a table time… and because Little M has hit a stage where all the things she loved to *oh so independently* do before, have become “mama help mama help”. So we sit, and we eat… and most things at dinner won’t get eaten unless I’m there, spoon-feeding her. Some nights, we’re good, she’ll sit and eat no problem… others, we sit together for almost an hour before a meal is completed. And while I love her to death, I prefer my long dining sessions to involve many friends and good conversation, not sitting alone at a table, struggling to convince my child to sit and eat, so we can play later. But whatever, it’s really not a problem, just a stage. And at least the food gets eaten…. thats the good and important part.
