I'm taking refuge here from my children.

Or trying to, anyway. Littlest just tracked me down. (Why did I ever think I could do this mothering job? Nobody interviewed me!)

What do you do with a child who appears to forget that the food is in front of him? Who either glazes over between forkfulls, or is so busy yammering on that he never actually uses the fork? That's 8yo eldest.

Not to mention littlest, who is just a teething toddler and can't help it.

Thank goodness for middle, who just gets on with it - most of the time - and even fed littlest when I fled.

Hello, am taking refuge in kitchen again. Last night all three picked at dinner and I refused to give them pudding and then DD1 sulked, DD2 stormed off to her bedroom and DD3 cried and cried. This morning DDs 2and 3 have fought whinged and moaned ALL morning and I have resorted to videos and gasp sweeties! The moaning continues.....and thats me.grin

lmao! You sound like me! I always take refuge in the kitchen out of the way n leave mine to it. I'm usually the one munching sweeties though, not the lo's

Yeah, that's the trouble with taking refuge in the kitchen!

Best place for it IMO! You have the kettle n all the food in the house in the kitchen. Plonk yourself on your bum with a cuppa n something to munch n play on MN until they stop whingeing! Mine usually realise after about half an hour that I'm not there refereeing & come to find me . . . munching their sweets that nanna bought them blush grin
