Keeping Shoes On

How do I get my 22 month old to keep her SHOES on in the car? Every time we are in the car she takes them off. It's annoying to have to put them back on every time we get out. I've tried explaining why she needs them on and when I can I carry her instead of letting her walk. (My attempt to show her that she needs her shoes to walk on the ground-She hates it.) But really I can't carry her everywhere, especially with the new baby coming.

Any advice to get her to keep them on?

Picky Eater and Silverware

Lindsey has a daughter, like so many of us, who is a picky eater.

She writes, "My daughter is about 19 months and I just wanted some tips on getting her to eat with silverware. I give her the option of eating with silverware if she wants to but sometimes it's just easier with her hands. Not worried just wanting some advice. A little WORRIED about my next question. My daughter is such a picky eater. She'll go from one day to the next with different kinds of food she likes. When we go out to eat or over to Grandma's she hardly EATS anything because she seems to always want to be busy. She still takes a bottle right before bed and just drinks it so fast. I feel like she's hungry and counts on that bottle to fill her up at night and we're trying to get her off of it completely soon. I need help with my picky eater! Also any foods or recipes for picky eaters would be great!!"
