"And WE helped!"

We've come to a momentous decision this evening. We've tried it before, but the path of least resistance has always won out in the past. But we need to do it again, and it's time.

From now on, everyone eats the same dinner.

No more "I don't like this, can I have a sandwich?" No more "We know you won't eat this, so we're having it, but you've got macaroni and cheese."

Dinner is dinner. No one ever starved because they refused to eat one meal. Because that's the rule: Dinner is dinner, eat it or eat nothing. You can last through until breakfast if you won't eat it. It was good enough for my family, it was good enough for Susie's family, and by gum, it's gonna be good enough for our kids.

We hope.

Woohoo!! Good luck, and I'll be cheering you on! It's rough at first, and every so often I give in... but for the most part it's done wonders for our mealtimes.
