First full day

The first full day of Pizza Week (aka, my wife is out of town) was troubled. The fruit pizza (with sweetened cream cheese) did not go over well. At all. The more traditional pepperoni pizza I made for dinner (with the good pepp) also did not go over well. My son got me to make him a mini-pizza at the end of the day and I put all his usual boring toppings on them.

As for the rest of the day, I’m a single parent so I’m not getting online all that much. I did have a productive conversation with my agent yesterday, and I plan to talk a little about that when it’s not so late. Bedtime has passed, so I must pass out.

If your child is not into surprises or changing things he likes, doing so arbitrarily will likely produce a lot of "I don't like that!". I know, I have at least one like that.

You might get slightly better results if you let him do the design work and make it more a cooking game, if you haven't tried that?

There's an unhappy tension between offering and giving. If I offer things, he says no no no. If I just set it beside him without discussing it first, he'll eat it. Sometimes. If he asks for it and I make it, he'll sometimes eat two bites and say he's full. It's a thing.

And he's wised up to the whole "help with the cooking" thing. It smells like busy work to him, and he flees the room when I start that discussion.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
