What Would You Have Done With Your Kid If...

You offered them two choices for dinner:  a corn dog or mac & cheese with veggies. (i had planned to eat chicken soup from the crockpot but for some reason its not finished yet). He had a corn dog for lunch but its something easy to make so I figured it wouldn't be a big deal to have it again. He said he didn't want a corn dog and he wanted to have mac & cheese but he didnt want veggies. well, i made the veggies anyway. now he's saying he doesn't want ANY of it bc he wants the corn dog. no, he's having mac & cheese (and veggies, whether he likes it or not) for dinner. i feel like he needs to stick by his choices. what do you think?

I'd stick to what he told you originally.

Too bad, so sad. I'm not a short order cook. You get what you get and you don't throw a fit :)

I would have given the mac and cheese without the veggies.

I wouldn't have offered either one.  Doesn't qualify as dinner in my book.  But, having gone down that road, you should stick to your guns.  You're not a short order cook.  He's a lucky kid to get those choices for dinner. 

 

Just FYI, I would have picked the corn dog.

We say that at our house too. Rori even says it to her cousins if they fuss about food.
