Indepenence

Little Miss came by her name honestly. She is very much my child and very much the hubs daughter...she is our own Little Miss Independent.

It was an evening like many others...dinner time had arrived and I got set to feed her some ravioli's.
As I hold up a spoon full, she pulls back and shakes her head NO. I tried to talk her into it to no avail and so I did what any self respecting mother would do and put the spoon in her mouth, convinced she would eat it, realize it was yummy and dinner would continue. She promptly spit it out.

So what do I do? How do I get my happy, just been bathed child to eat...Yes, that's right...I gave her the bowl, I gave her the spoon and went back to cooking dinner for the rest of the hungry, waiting family.

Did she eat? Yes, and then some....

Independence or stubbornness...do you get what you want?
