One of the only things I can count on that Ash will eat is cereal (preferably Froot Loops). She's in this habit of crying out that she's hungry the minute we tell her it's bedtime. She knows she's got us when she says that because my little girl eats like a bird and we're constantly worried that she's not eating enough and offering her food.
