Ever struggle to feed your kids oatmeal?  I know when I was a child I really did not like oatmeal. My mom always tried to make it appealing with fresh fruit, or cinnamon and milk. No matter what though, my gag reflexes always kicked in when trying to eat oatmeal.  Thankfully my taste buds have refined themselves as an adult, and I actually enjoy oatmeal now. I can not eat it plain though. 
 
Unfortunately, my kids have taken after me and struggle eating the sticky stuff. I’ve tried a multitude of ways, including fun fruit parfaits, but nothing could get them to eat it. That is, until I baked it.  Princess V is the only one that still fights me on oatmeal, while the other 3 gobble it up and even ask for more. According to Princess C “3 is good Mom. Can I have one more?”
 
Of course Princess V’s reaction was a bit more dramatic when after some screaming and wailing, I sent her back to bed, she uttered the words “You’re going DOWN for this!”  Well, I must be parenting right, but I think some TV shows need to be turned off for awhile…Avatar, or very possibly the old Sonic the Hedgehog we’ve recently introduced the kids to. And by the way, I saved her oatmeal for her and still made her eat it once she calmed down and apologized. 
 
I’m still feeling a win on this with 3 out of 4 kids liking it
