thank you for that mommyto3girls!!! your situation sounds eerily similar to ours.
this weekend i had a horrific stomach bug and dh had to step up with all 4 of his kids (mine were with their dad). he realized how wearing it is to try and come up with food that his son would eat that is adequately nutritious. he finally just told w to eat it or do without because he was exhausted! he is sick today and thankful that i am here and that i have rules and order in place 24/7.
it's very emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually draining
my whole concern is i want fairness, equality, and LOVE to abound. . and even is we decide to just go with it and let chaos ensue and every man fend for himself at meals, i'd like that to be a united decision that we stand behind. it's not so much about being strict as it is about STICKING TO IT.
