Linguini Facial

Please excuse my pitiful excuse for photshopping. Why I can’t get text to paste in clearly as a photo is beyond me. Anyway, this is a snapshot of my Facebook update the other night.

I made a healthy, home-freaking-made-from-scratch meal and I was ready to impale myself on a dull spoon mid way through dinner. My
little girl eats like a bird. A humming bird.
Lately we’ve made great gains…in food diversity AND in weight. It’s a roller coaster – good days and bad. I’m ok with that. But, when your child refuses to eat something she normally loves, it’s irritating. For the love of god, who refuses linguini??
I tried everything. All of our usual tricks. Even our latest and greatest…paying off each bite with a butterscotch CHIPIT.
I can handle a little food refusal. What I can’t handle is when my child wrestles her dish (which was suction cupped to the table for stability) with such furry and determination that it launches suddenly upwards, flinging the entire meal like an aerial assault by an army of searing hot saucy snakes, into her mother’s face. I’m all for a facial, but I draw the line at a prima vera treatment. 
So I threw in the towel, after wiping away the sauce with it, and retreated to my office, leaving daddy to deal with the pasta shrapnel. Tomorrow would be a new day and that suction cup bowl? It’s been relegated to the deep, dark recesses of the kids’ dish and cup cupboard. Never to be seen again. That thing’s a hazard.
