  • Stroppy daughter!

    Hence the time I have to reply to some post this morning πŸ˜€
    I have been sat for about 45 minutes now whilst my four year old daughter is kicking off about eating hot cross buns.
    Generally she is pretty good but sometimes it just becomes a battle of wills .
    She has just informed me that ' it is going to take hours ' to which I replied I have all day.
    It is quite amusing and all over one hot cross bun.

    When one of my kids was a toddler he wouldn't eat his peas. We sat at the table for hours. He won.

          LOL, that's funny Carl

          Also, without wishing to be sacrilegious, just suppose there was a Second Coming...do you think Jesus would be a bit perturbed to see the method of His execution being merrily applied to baked goods? Jus' saying'....

          Tasty, though and I hope everyone has had a Happy Easter.

            How many hours? I think I have managed two hours at least before one of them caved in

            Stepping way out of my comfort zone there Harb, my level of knowledge of religion is pretty low- I just get tasty buns at Easter and I know that even if I am full from Chocolate I DO NOT refuse to try the specially baked hot cross buns - with reference to above- my wife is South African! :S :S

              South African can’t be worse than Australian which my first one was, mad as a box of frogs.

                I don't know, maybe its a Southern hemisphere thing?
                All I know that you think you've done well bagging a 'Worldie' but boy does it come at a price
                I put it down to a mixture of something in the soil and possible some iffy bloodlines- I have to pick and choose my times to discuss it
                She is a good old girl really

                  I guess I am lucky not having been in this situation with my 10 and 11 year old. I do wonder if my newborn boy will be like this. Not sure how I would react in a stand off. You have my sympathy.

                    Patience and 35 years of pig headed stubbornness against 4!
                    She is trying it on a little at the moment, I think my son had a similar thing around this age.
                    Ironically the food they have at school is a three course meal every day and incredibly varied and they tend to eat it all without fuss. It is just at home she is playing up a bit at the moment . I would rather it that way round than fine at home and nightmare at school

                      I don't recall how many hours the standoff took. It was about 25 years ago. Yes you must pick your battles. There are things I wouldn't eat as a kid and I still won't !!

                        I haven't got kids but I remember sitting at the dinner table for hours because I wouldn't eat roast potatoes when I was a kid. I was also made to eat other things only to find out years later that my parents
                        didn't eat what they were trying to feed me, I have no Idea why I never noticed they weren't eating the stuff.

                          Lol thats brilliant! At least I do not expect the kids to eat what I wouldn't. I'm guessing that you were too deep in battle at the time to realise

                            It's funny you don't notice these things when your young, and then find out your parents are more fussy than I ever was.
