Don't let his handsome looks deceive you. He's a dinner monster.
Dinner starts out well almost every night.
He's excited, grabs his milk, and meets me at the table to wait to be seated.
Then the fun begins.
On good nights, he likes what's for dinner.
This means he'll eat 5+ bites of food (and even multiple items).
On bad nights, he'll take one bite and throw the next one on the floor.
Then the next....and the next.
Then the fork.
Then the sippy.
I usually pick up the fork/sippy once. After that, if he throws it again I tell him the next time he throws something, he's done with dinner (right, and insert the eye roll here at my attempt to reason with a toddler).
One more throw and he's done. Out-of-the-chair-done.
Then the dog starts sniffing around the table.
I yell at the dog, the dog runs out, I sit down, and BAM!
There goes another bite of food.
And 99/100 dinners, he's fine with that.
But that 1 time he's not, I feel like the worst mom ever
when he comes back and wants some of my food.
So what do I do?
I try it again.
And once again, the food goes flying.
So tell me - what's the secret to getting a toddler to eat?
