My daughter and I have come to a tentative compromise. She doesn't take food out of the kitchen and I let her sit somewhere other than the kitchen table. Here is her favorite spot, a little corner between the cabinet and the glass rail that separates the living room and kitchen.
She chooses this spot all the time, even though we do have a perfectly Finleigh friendly table on the other side of the kitchen. I think she likes this spot because it's small and cozy and it's just her size. Also? There's a great view of the TV from there and since mean mommy doesn't allow her to bring food into the living room, this is the place to be.
Today, Miss Finn was so tuckered out after school, that she fell asleep while eating lunch.
She was so, so tired...
... that she was fell asleep mid-grab.
What must it be like to be my little girl?
