One day when you read this blog, maybe in book form, you will read this post and call me and say:
"Mom, I can't believe you did that".
Being a parent means learning to roll with the punches. More specifically, it means knowing some tricks to achieve desired outcomes. Lately, my desired outcome has been for you to try new foods, or foods that your haven't cared for much in the past. I have tried so many different ways to get this accomplished - rather unsuccessfully. Don't get me wrong. You are a wonderful eater. You eat three solid, healthy meals a day,enjoy a wide variety of foods, are rather unpicky, and you sit calmly in your chair and share good "family dinnertime discussion". Usually you talk about Wrigley. Or your love for condiments.
So back to the trying of new foods - like I said, I have tried many different ways, and I just happen to have discovered the only one that works:
Me: "Logan please take a bite of your pineapple/pears/broccoli/lima beans/etc."
Logan: "Ummmmmmm... no"
Me: "But Mickey Mouse brought it here!"
Logan: "Mickey mouse eat pipebapple"
Me: "He sure does!"
BINGO! You now have a love for all these foods. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
You are welcome.
