Yesterday, while I was cooking dinner, Jaina came up to me and announced:
"I don't like vegetables at all. Only meat, grains, and squash."
I gently reminded her that squash, was indeed, considered a vegetable.
"Oh, well... that's the only vegetable I like."
I replied, "But I thought you liked zucchini, too?"
"OH! I do like zucchini!" she exclaimed.
"And how about broccoli and cheese?"
"That's my favorite!! I LOVE broccoli and cheese!"
Then she pondered for a bit and said, "I just really don't like corn."
I said, "Okay, sweetie, you don't have to eat corn if you don't want to."
"Well," she replied, "I do like that corn with the butter sauce that you made one time. But only that corn."
And tonight? She ate french style green beans and exclaimed, "I love green beans and they are my favorite!! YUM!"
So much for not liking vegetables!
