My 5yo has been nearly vegetarian since she was a toddler, but she knows she needs to eat a protein with every meal. She gets to pick most nights and I made her chicken parmigiana at her request.

We never force our kids to finish anything they don’t want to eat. The rule is that they need to eat a healthy balanced meal if they want an after dinner dessert and this negotiation was 💯% due to the box of donuts sitting on the corner of the counter.

2yo “Dad can I see your muscles to see if you can open my snack?”
me “Ok…”
2yo “Yeah! you have muscles! Now touch the roof!”
me “Ok…”
2yo “You can touch the roof! That means you can open my snack!”

I bought my own Christmas Present. I’ve been told I’m not allowed to open it…

Something about “Don’t spoil xmas, you Scrooge” and “the kids don’t get their presents early”

Quick because I’m new here.

Im a stay at home dad of 2. I’ve had a few careers in the past but when our 2nd was born and we moved to a new state we reprioritized so I could focus on dad-ness and it’s worked out great for us.

I live in the of the US and have a slew of hobbies that fight for what little free time we Dads have. Some of them are , , , and
