If you ventured to guess that there are more things contested than agreed upon in our home, then you would be right. My kids are superstars at being strong-willed. They like things a certain way. They do things on their own timeline. They think they’re always right and they are not afraid to tell you exactly that. I really don’t know where they get it from, y’all! Probably my husband…
Now that both of my children will be in school, they will each have more responsibilities. I am trying to balance preparing them for greater responsibility in life with trying to keep things light. My goal is always to have a higher ratio of fun times than the little disagreements and challenges that every family experiences on a daily basis. But there will always be those disagreements and challenges! Here are some of ours:
Jo, please clean up your room. “NO!” Three hours later, it still looks like this.
C, it’s time to get dressed! Later that afternoon, he is still in pajamas.
Kids, let’s read a book! “No, we’re busy!”
Before you come to the conclusion that I have completely lost control in this household, there is one thing my kids and I don’t fight about: Lunchables Organic! Picking your battles can be challenging, but Lunchables Organic eliminates one of those challenges for me! My kids enjoy creating their own pizzas. I enjoy that they are eating USDA certified organic food that is and free of artificial preservatives, ingredients, flavors or colors*.
Lunchables Organic also inadvertently helps both of my kids with their sensory challenges. By creating their own pizzas, they are engaging in a sensory activity! Jo had more ownership over her food and was more excited to eat her pizza masterpiece. As a caregiver who regularly experiences burn-out over finding foods my kids will eat, this takes a lot of stress off of my plate (no pun intended!).
