Bargaining with a 3 year old

Ellie stalled her dinner tonight at great length.  We dangled some carrot cake to promote her to finish her noodles yet she lingered and read and ran around the house until we had said a number of times, “Ellie when you finish your dinner you can have some cake.”  Finally, she stopped fooling around and looked at Matt then said, “Well, you guys just say that over and over again but I haven’t seen any cake.”

  1. I’ve started threatening Dorian with no stories if he doesn’t eat. That seems to work for him! (Not motivated by food, our kid.)
