It's Yummy!


A couple of weeks ago, Randy and I took the kids to eat Chinese. And just like most Chinese restaurants, we received Fortune Cookies with our bill. This is one of Josiah's favorite parts of the meal. As soon as he got situated in his car seat, he asked for his cookie. A few minutes later, I asked if he enjoyed his cookie (I no longer heard crunching).

Josiah: "Mmmm, mmm"
Mommy: "Where's the paper?"
Josiah: "What paper?"
Mommy: "The paper that was inside of the cookie."
Josiah: "I ate it, it was yummy."

********************************
Today, I cut up some strawberries to eat with our lunch. However, Josiah didn't want me to cut up his strawberry, he wanted to eat it whole. "Okay" and gave him the strawberry. After I observed him try to eat the piece of fruit (stem side first), I instructed him to eat only the red part, not the leaves. After a few minutes, I asked him if he was done with his strawberry, ready to tell him to throw the leaf part away. "Mmm, mmm" and stuffed the rest of the strawberry into his mouth.....stem and all.

Man, I can't get this kid to eat a decent meal without force, but he's more than willing to eat paper fortunes and strawberry stems. Hmmmm.

Lol! That is too funny! One of mine would eat entire peaches and plums... pits included! Same with apple cores. I'm amazed they never caused any problems!

So funny! I caught Calet eating a banana peel today. Has Josiah tried those yet? ;o)

Ha! That's funny. I absolutely hate the strawberry stems and cut way around them. I think that might freak me out just a bit if Jenna ate that part.
