Sloppy Joes

Erin loves the show G**d Luck Charlie on D!sney.  There was an episode where the mother made sloppy joes & the family had a food fight.  Ever since seeing it, Erin has been begging for sloppy joes.

Tonight I gave in.  Dinner was sloppy joes with French Fries.  She was so happy to have this dinner.  Of course, her idea of eating was to take 2 bites & say "I'm full.  Can I have ice cream?"  This was a big thing.  Erin has only recently come to terms with the fact that red meat is supposed to be eaten & not stared at in our house.  We got her to eat a few more bites & allowed her to have her ice cream.

I know I probably shouldn't have given in on the ice cream, but we were so proud of her for trying something new.  I couldn't resist rewarding her.  Besides, the smile on her face when she came to the table was reward enough.  The kid was getting ice cream no matter what.

What can I say?  I'm wrapped.  Right around her cute little pinkie.

lol....wrapped around the finger we are for our children. Sam, has me right where he wants me and being he's a great child - I will do just about anything. I'm glad you gave her the ice cream. Trying something new here is also a big thing.
