Devil's Tongue?

Wow! That is so pretty! uttered the lady behind me. Oh yuh, isn't it gorgeous? I said. Euww.... DEVIL'S TONGUE??? well it's beautiful, but I am not going to take a picture, she said. Then she left. I did take a shot. Here it is showing off what I got from the botanic garden we just visited last weekend. Isn't it pretty?

No One Ever Said Parenting Was Easy!

If eating a small amount of food for an hour each meal is developmentally normal and age appropriate, this really drives me crazy. My 6 1/2 year old little girl eats healthy food, no doubt about it, but she only eats very little of everything. At home I give her fruits, vegetables,yogurt and sometimes as a treat chips and crackers. I always make sure that she eats what I give her. But in school, she doesn't finish her lunch. She brings her lunch box home hardly touched or even when she buys food at the cafeteria. I know that fights about food intake lead to ugly issues later in life, and a battle I will never win but this is really so stressful for me right now.
I hope she will outgrow this habit soon...
Any suggestions out there is welcome and very much appreciated.
