I think that every family has a history of this. However, few can boast of having the Conway stubbornness. It drives Scott crazy when we talk about it, but the fact remains that I'm quite sure that it is the most stubborn of the stubborn genes ever created by God.
Which brings me to this post. Brooks. He as always been more strong willed than Kate. She, with some exception, is really easy going. Easy.
Brooks, however, is not.
He is the pickiest child EVER. He has whittled himself down to only a handful of things he will eat: hot dogs, pb&j, pizza, chicken nuggets, mandarin oranges, yogurt, french toast. That's about it. No cheese, doesn't really like milk (unless it's choc), no ice cream (won't even TRY it!), etc...
So, I have gotten stubborn. Tonight I made lasagna (a great recipe from our church's new cookbook, BTW). He won't touch it. He is crying for a hot dog. He has been crying for a while now. I even put him in the bathtub... I hope he will change his tune once he gets out.
But, I kinda doubt it.
I have got to get that book about raising strong willed children. I'm sure that there is some Conway blood in that author's past. Somewhere.
