Gonna try not to jump everywhere. This might get wordy. My mom is always on me about trying to get Pixie to behave better. I admit, she runs my house. She is mouthy to me and she saves all her difficult child-ness for me. Mom, while being the queen of "medicine cures all", is not convinced that Pixie can't control herself since she does so well in school. Therefore she is on me constantly about disciplining her. I have explained the baskets and choosing my battles. But, after not doing such a grand job of raising Basset Hound (mom raised her for more than half her life while I was inn & out of drug rehab), I second guess myself all the time. Maybe I am giving Pixie a pass to be a little snot? I don't know. I reprimand her when she does really wrong. Otherwise I pretty much let her do her thing. She is SO independent. Am I out of line? Speaking of baskets, let's talk eating. Pixie has sensory issues. There are only certain foods that she will eat. I don't force her (let's be real, it's not like I could) to eat what she doesn't like. But she is 6 and has not had a vegetable since I stopped giving them to her out of a baby food jar. She won't eat meat unless it is in the form of a chicken nugget (or occasionally a hamburger). This kid could live on cereal. She takes a vitamin. Oh, she loves pasta but ONLY if I make the sauce homemade, and it cannot be leftovers (who does she think she is, Paris Hilton?) At what point do I start to move this out of basket C? GAWD, I hate when I start feeling inadequate. Thanks for listening and in advance for any advice.
