Not being a real eater myself, meals are always somewhat interesting at our house. I have two kids that are as indifferent to food as I am, and one child that very much needs a proper meal three times a day. It just goes to show that they come with their own personality. After nearly 9 years of me trying to get out of every meal of the day, my oldest still wants food! And like her father, she's somewhat offended at being offered a bowl of cereal three times a day; unlike the rest of us. So this morning (and pretty much every morning), this is how our conversation went:

Me: What do you want for breakfast girls?

#2: Oatmeal (every day, every meal, just like her mother(:)

#3: Hot cocoa (also like her mother(:)

#1: Do we have any roast beef?

Me: No

#1: Can you make me a burrito with chicken?

Me: No, seriously can't you just have cereal?

#1: I don't want cereal! Will you make me some rice and gravy?

Me: No, I'm not making you dinner for breakfast, lets keep it simple

#1: Fine, can I have Alfredo and a can of corn?

So seriously, my little chicken ate left over alfredo, and a can of corn for breakfast, and had a corn dog chaser about an hour later. I don't know where this child came from.

I totally agree. Cereal should be for every meal. At least my kids agree with me. The amount of cereal we go through is crazy. I can't stand to make lunch and dinner. Dinner is enough!

This is fantastic. At least she eats SOMETHING, even though her tastes may be considered a bit odd.
