If I were to write a book it would be called “The Struggles of Taking that No Thank You Bite”. Although it has been a year and a half since the last time I had an interchange like the one above, I do remember it well. It plays out as; 1. Baby, takes one ‘wiff’ of the green goo you have spooned up and 2. refuse it entirely. It isn’t until you pretend to try some, rave that it is DIVINE and then carry on by turning the spoon into an airplane and flying it around the room, when they try a little. I am completely convinced that all the above is successful NOT because we, as parents are wonderful actors BUT that our children feel sorry by our performance and can do nothing else but to eat the goo. Truly! Unfortunately, this whole act doesn’t work on four-year-old little boys (yes, I’ve tried). Instead, it leads to comments like, “Mom, you’re soooo weird!” Gotta love the support LOL!
About MeI was the girl who thought dresses were stupid, climbed trees on recess and always had a drawing pencil in hand. My dreams came true when I married my prince, and had three of the cutest boys ever. My drawing pencil is still in hand, and when I am not drawing, I am thinking about it. Many of my illustrations are inspired by the adventures my boys and I have together. P.S Still, dresses are dumb.
