When you’re between a rock and a hard place, you get inventive. When it’s your first child, you praise yourself constantly for your imagination. I suppose by the time you are a parent to two, these tricks are not so much tricks as they are simple rules in raising kids that everyone seems to know. As for me, I’m a novice. Let me bask in the glory of success.
I’ve tried a few different things as of late to expose Hooper to a wider variety of foods. While things are still hit or miss, he has definitely broadened his palate.
Hooper loves crackers. And when I say love, what I mean is that he will take already been chewed food out of his mouth and throw it on the floor if that cracker box even passes his field of vision. So I decided to work this to my advantage. As of late, he’s tried a few different spreads, peanut putter, and guacamole all on top of his beloved cracker. These are all things previously refused. Yes, he refused peanut butter.
Dear cracker, thank you for turning my gray skies blue.
