Well, he's two. And he's gone a full day without eating before (when sickly, etc), which then leads to an already poorly-eating child not sleeping at all because he's hungry. He also often skips lunch at daycare because there's lots of stuff he likes to do so he'll wander away from the table, and he's often up more at night on those days. Currently, I pick my battles, because I like some sleep and a kid who doesn't scream all night

Picking your battles is key for sure

Also, food is something that is so very important for their entire life I will NEVER battle over it (I mean sure a bit here and there now that they are older...we do have guidelines etc and its not a free for all) but will never force my child to eat things. First, I am extremely picky so yeah, I get it. There are many things that make me feel ill to eat...not going to do the same to my kids. Second, know too many people that have/had eating disorders. Will not make food a control issue to have it manifest more strongly as a disorder.

The good news, kids go in and out of weird eating phases all the time Go from (yes especially around 2 for many lol) eating nothing to eating all the things, back to nothing etc. Its about balance over time....long term goals in eating

Capping off an amazing day of football: Greg Hardy wearing some incredibly badass sunglasses just announced himself as "Kraken" and then said he went to school at Hogwarts.

AWESOME

Agreed with all this! I know a lot of people underestimate a child's willpower too. "If he gets hungry enough, he'll eat." You'd be surprised...

That's fantastic. I just googled it and busted up laughing.

SNOW DAY TOMORROW!!! It's supposed to be freezing rain/ice all night, so the roads are going to be a mess and school is C.L.O.S.E.D!

I went snowboarding yesterday for the first time since I jacked up my knee! It was great to get back out on the mountain and my knee felt great. The only issue is I now have a couple mental blocks about carving, because I'm terrified of catching the wrong edge again and ending up back in a brace. Also, scared of going to fast and not having control, so I kept getting stuck in a lot of the speed control areas because I wasn't going fast enough to have enough momentum.

I think we're going to hit up Breckenridge on Wednesday, which has some awesome slopes for my skill level.

I am 9 days into gluten free again, and this time I feel like I might actually be able to make it a long-term thing

In the past 9 days I've turned down doughnuts, homemade brownies, and chocolate covered pretzels at work. I made, from scratch, two batches of cookies for a party, and didn't so much as taste the batter. At said party I turned down all the yummy looking snacks. Went out to eat yesterday and made sure to check the menu before I left to see what I could eat, and ate it, even though it would not have been something I would have ordered if I hadn't been looking for GF. And the best part is that it hasn't even been difficult for me, usually I struggle from the word go. So yeah, I feel like this:

I have found the shop where ALL my future coffee mugs are coming from. Except, they're not worth $15. I'm sorry, but no. Except RX-7!!!

Very true! But keep in mind for some children, it could be a sensory issue. I know of two kids personally who would go days without eating. I dare say a week or until hospitalization or medical intervention. And it's strictly sensory related. Not being a brat. Not being stubborn. But, for others who have no idea about the child(ren) I can see where they'd assume that.

I'd MUCH rather seen the foods posted above (Grab) than junk junk junk.
Have you tried making things out of the food, sometimes encouraged snacking. Like... ants on a log, banana boats, etc? Food for thought lol that was bad, I know

Expecting more snow tonight/tomorrow morning. 2 snow days in a row? Oh DC...

Also, I managed to walk Lucy for the first time in weeks. My sciatic nerve isn't bothering me today, and I successfully made it at least a mile with her around the neighborhood. It felt good
