Picnic In The  Park  Parking Lot

Kensley has been learning the hard lesson about choices in life.

She has the ability to make {some} choices, but as a result,
poor choices will result in a consequence.

Kensley has made the choice to only desire to eat Oreo cookies and fruit snacks.

NOT AN OPTION IN OUR HOUSE

We keep giving her choices:

"Do you want strawberries or raspberries?"

"Do you want green beans or cucumbers?"

"Do you want milk or juice?"

Since she still doesn't talk, knowing what her answer is can be a challenge in itself,
but lately, it's been pretty clear.

She'll run to the cabinet where the snacks are kept for Rob's lunch!

So, as a frustrated parent who refuses to give in and let a 1 year old "win",
Kensley hasn't had too much to eat over the past few days.

{Remember: this is her choice}

While making a quick run to Walmart, Kensley decided that she wanted a banana.
Mamaw was nice enough to buy her one and made plans of taking her to the park for a picnic.

We never made it to the park; we barely even made it to the parking lot!
In the end, I am glad that Kensley chose something {within my standards}
that she wanted to eat and probably feels better now that her belly is full!
