Kids: They know how to get under your skin especially picky eaters.

Default post image

My daughter is a picky eater. Not your run-of-the-mill “eats only chicken nuggets” picky eater, but the “”I’m going to taste everything then spit it out picky eater. This morning was a nightmare for me. First, a little back-story:

I am a terrible cook. I never learned how to cook when I was younger, and my husband has tried for years to teach me. But I keep having debacles in the kitchen, so my kitchen confidence is at an all-time low.

This added to the fact that my daughter hates to eat, gives me a bit of a “complex”. I’m neurotic, I’ll totally admit that, but when you have a little one who is constantly telling you how BAD everything is you start believing it.

Last night, my husband made chicken parmesean from scratch. It was amazing. Nearly every bite M took, she complained about or spit it out. She mostly uses the excuse “there’s fat on it”. Which we knew wasn’t the case, it was just smothered in cheese. Apparently, she can’t handle that. So we told her to go to bed. We weren’t putting up with this anymore.

Fast forward to this morning:

So this morning (a snow/ice day) M stayed home from school. I thought it would be nice if I made scrambled eggs and toast for a little brunch. As I’m making the eggs, M comes over and says “I hope you aren’t going to give them to me like that”. Uh, no. Wasn’t planning on serving them raw. Justsayin.

So she goes off to do whatever 7 year-olds do while their mom is screwing up breakfast, and I call her back in to place her plate in front of her.

And her response?


Whoa there nelly,

1) Didn’t ask your opinion on what I was going to put in front of you because you can’t have eggs without toast. Sorry, it’s like a hotdog and mustard. You just don’t do it.

2) Every time I make eggs, you steal some of mine.

So she did the logical thing. Took two bites and declared she was full.

I was furious. I told her no more treats (candy, chips- you know- the normal kid crack) until she could handle herself at the table for an entire week. She needs to be thankful for the meals we make her, and not spit out the food. Not only is it rude, but it’s gross!

So do you have a picky eater? How do you handle dinner time? I need all the advice I can get on this one because I’m pulling my hair out.

New clip! My family and I are so excited for this to come out. This story is so close to my heart (my nickname in high school was “Dorothy”, bet you can’t guess why 😉 ) but I have to wait to go see it because the kiddo is currently sick. At least I can enjoy the little clips Disney sends me in the mean time!

Since I’ve essentially “outed” myself as a conservative blogger and firearms enthusiast, I figured I’d post what I’ve been up to lately. It’s been 12 years since I’ve fired a pistol, and the first time I’ve ever fired a Glock 23 (which is BEEFY). And here’s what I came up with:

I don’t think target-man survived.



WHIO-TV is at it again- Deleting Comments and Cyber Stalking to Protect Rapist

Default post image

I’ll be honest. I’m completely confused by WHIO’s recent actions. They aren’t answering any of my questions, and I’ve reached out several times. My previous post about this subject reached over 35,000 people and has been covered on countless blogs- so I feel that some updates are needed. A few days ago, Chad D. Baus of BuckeyeFirearms.org reached out to our local Sheriff to confirm his involvement with the Adam Project, and also confirm WHIO’s claim that convicted rapist Jerome McCorry is in fact endorsed by law enforcement. I’ll let you guess what they found. A whole lot of nothin’.

Mr. Baus heard it straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth- Sheriff Plummer removed himself from the Adam project three years ago and doesn’t support Mr. McCorry’s anti-gun message.Please take a minute to read Buckeye Firearm’s post about this.

WHIO lied again. Surprised? Not so much.

Then this afternoon, WHIO spoke out on their Facebook page when confronted with the claim that they’re deleting comments from their page about Mr.McCorry and their involvement.

So I hope you read that. They’re actually cyber-stalking their fans to confirm that they really are in their market. Disgusting. This is an issue affecting our entire nation. Shouldn’t everyone be allowed to weigh in? I’m sure they don’t delete positive comments when they’re out of their market.

What I find the worst though? Where are all the so-called “feminists”? This man was convicted of violence against a woman, WHIO-TV publicly supports him and they are silent. If this were a Republican or Conservative- WHIO-TV and every liberal female would be up in arms about it. But because it involves gun-control, they’d rather leave the victim in the cold and glorify the rapist. It’s sickening to see the liberal agenda being used to further gun-control while giving a rapist the stage.Of course a rapist doesn’t want guns- it’s going to make his crimes against women more dangerous!

Stand up for your rights. Stand up for women. Stand up for victims of rape.

Don’t stand for what WHIO-TV is doing.
