I have been having a terrible time getting Ruby to eat dinner lately. She really wants to be in control of what she eats and reminds me she doesn't want to eat anything that I cook, only waffles and corn dogs. So I of course have been cooking more and forcing her to eat what I cook by providing it as her only option if she is hungry. So during this giant power struggle the other night, Ruby insisted that she was the boss of me. I think she thought I would go for it. So it went something like this:
Ruby- Mom, I am the boss of you!
Me- Okay, but I am the big boss and I say eat you dinner!
Ruby- I am the little boss and I say eat candy!
I immediately started giggling and we both had a good laugh. She ate it later with her Dad when he came home. She is hilarious. She keeps us laughing!
