That was this weekends lesson. I have heard it many times before, but after hearing it again this weekend, I realized how true it is. I mean really is my son going to starve to death or have terrible health if for one meal he doesn't eat any veggies and has 2 hot dogs?? If they drink kool-aid for 3 meals in one day does that mean they are going to have under developed bones for lack of milk? If they have 2 snacks in a day and maybe a little extra dessert does that mean their whole meal is ruined??
NO!! They will be fine, pick your battles and learn to relax. I tell myself this often, as does my husband, but I really need to start taking it to heart. They will grow up just fine, these little changes that are few and far between won't hurt them in any way. All in all I should be thankful for the 2 wonderful healthy kids.
