So, yesterday, I came face to face with the ugly truth...that I was intimidated by trying to feed vegetables to the Cherubim. This was very embarrassing..>I am not usually prey to intimidation...but I had to admit that was why I did not confront him regularly and force the issue.
As I prepared the plate of veggies, I thought to myself "I'm just going to pretend that I'm some other mother, who is not intimidated by her son." This amused me and I spent time planning how to put this in a book.
And then, he ate his vegetables. All three -- a carrot, a piece of celery, and a piece of spinach. Just like that.
