Man it is hard to hold your ground when you know your kid is hungry. Quinn decided that she wanted to play rather then have dinner... so we told her that this is dinner and she gets nothing else to eat or drink other then water. She said okay and continued to play. Well an hour later when it was bedtime, as expected, she started wailing that she was hungry. We managed, but it is very difficult to hold your ground when you know that indeed she must be starving.
