Stubbornness At Its Best!

This is Caleb.

This is what Caleb decided to do instead of eating two bites of hot dog.

Even though, if he had eaten those two bites he would have been allowed to have chocolate ice cream (we were supposed to go out for ice cream after dinner).

But no, Caleb decided to be stubborn, refuse to eat the two bites of hot dog, saying he didn't want chocolate ice cream (which is only his favorite food).

No, Caleb decided he'd just get down on the floor and go to sleep.

Take that Mommy (I swear that's what he's saying in his sleep)!

That happens at least once a week at my house! I had to beg and plead to get my boys to eat three bites of corn yesterday. And they like corn:) I think they just enjoy winning the battle sometimes!

Oh to stubborn boys. My mom says that Trey has no chance as he has two very stubborn parents.
I do love this photo. I can't believe he feel asleep.
I always love these posts as they make me feel as though there are other moms in the same boat.
Have a fabulous day!

That's just too cute! I won't tell my 13 yo that one. He'll be taking a nap every time I serve green beans.

Man do I know that story...I can see that in Alex alot...he gets it from me, haha! he is so cute...but I'm pretty sure it wasn't at the time! So did no one get to go out for ice-cream? Way to stick to your guns, though...that's the hardest about being a mom :)

Oh dear. You and me both. Those little boys. Mine tested me at every step today. Whipped and beaten down, but still so very blessed. Your sweet, stubborn guy's pic made me crack a smile though. Hang in there momma!

Oh man...my middle child is like that. She will go without food for days if it is something she doesn't like or want to eat. Stubborn. Too cute that he fell asleep

Stacey said...

With any luck that stubborn-ness will morph into dogged determination and serve him well later in life!

LOL he's an absolute doll Keli.

My boy informs me that he no longer likes grilled cheese. Since when? Tuesday? It's always something!
