Moving on. Today she said to me several times that she thought we were going to go to McDonalds and get a mcflurry. Which is funny, because I never said any such thing, and I have no idea where she got the idea. If she was trying to convince me I actually said that, then she gets points for thinking that up. However, it didn't work. She wasn't too happy that she couldn't have junk food for dinner, and I have had a bad headache for the better part of 4 hours, which pushed all ideas for dinner out of my brain.
So I decided Sophie should pick something out. I had her look in the cabinets and in the fridge, and she chose: a zucchini, bacon, green onions, artichoke hearts, and grape tomatoes. I added eggs and mixed that all up for her, and she couldn't have been happier! The ice cream was forgotten and she was very pleased with herself that she 'planned' dinner. She ate it all up, no complaining, and giggled the whole time.
As long as she thought dinner was her choice, she was happy with it. And I will say, that she eats paleo food with MUCH less complaining than she does 'regular' food. If she were to have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I would have to remind her to keep eating about 147 times during the meal. Stir fried veggies though, and some awesome protein, and she's done faster than I am! *Especially* if she helps cook it.
