How do they know? My kid takes one look at broccoli and gives me the "no, no, Momma" head shake. If I put green frosting on a fork, he'd devour it without even looking twice. Maybe I should put green frosting on broccoli.
Julie,yes.. thank god today she was finally back to normal!Deb,I do not know.. but Dr Oz told me (okay, via Oprah) that young kids avoid bitter because in the wilds that is a sign of poison where as sweet plants are safe... so maybe a little sugar on the broccoli would go a long way...now Baby was rummaging around under the table foraging for food.. I knew that... but I was blogging so I kind of let it go for a while (hey she throws it down there anyway!)... I knew something was up by the way she was eating it.. kind of like when she is eating dried leaf bits... that and her super fast scuttle under the chair...but when I went in for the retrieval she had that cookie bit in lock down and I couldn't get it out. Ah well.. we hadn't exactly worked up to chocolate but at least I didn't have to get out the hydrogen pyroxide!
She's a sneaky one! Great picture. I wish I could be seeing her in person...Oh! I have a new nickname for you--The Incredible Shrinking Woman. (Did you ever see that Lily Tomlin movie? You were probably, like, 2 when I saw that!
Baby had her first Oreo....Go, Baby! And it wasn't very messy at all. Maybe she could give neat Oreo eating lessons to my girls?Maybe I should put green frosting on broccoliLOL! Let me know if it works and maybe it will help me eat broccoli. Tori loves broccoli, but only if it's fresh and lightly steamed. Chris and I HATE broccoli. I think it's the only thing I've ever agreed on with President Bush I.so maybe a little sugar on the broccoli would go a long way...I know a nice cheese sauce goes a long way towards making broccoli palatable :)
My deep dark secret is that once Nate grabbed a dorito out of my hands. he devoured. now if he ever sees me eating them he freaks out. he must have a dorito. it's weird. is dorito obsession an inheritable trait? most of the time i eat doritos in hiding...but once in a while i forget about his obsession and have to share some doritos with him (it's rare and he only gets a few--but it's very funny).
I hated it as a kid, but I love it now. Of course, when I was a kid, it was probably served boiled, soggy and from a frozen Green Giant bag...Nowadays whether Mrs F prepares fresh or frozen, it's steamed and delicious, and fortunately most restaurants do a good job preparing broccoli "al dente" as well.
My deep dark secret is that once Nate grabbed a dorito out of my hands.Angie, this is too funny!!
Of course, when I was a kid, it was probably served boiled, soggy and from a frozen Green Giant bag...Mr. F., our moms must have gone to the same cooking school. I didn't know that cooked broccoli was supposed to be green and not mushy until much later in life.
"it was probably served boiled, soggy and from a frozen Green Giant bag"You say that like it's a bad thing.Okay seriously as a kid our veggies consisted of corn/peas/potatoes. I think they were actually from a can. I can't remember even eating "real" veggies. ...just thinking how this post was about Oreos in the first place!
whether Mrs F prepares fresh or frozen, it's steamed and deliciousNo slight to Mrs. F's amazing skill, but broccoli and delicious don't belong in the same sentence, whether soggy, firm, raw, cooked, steamed or boiled. :)Good for baby. Mmmmm, floor food....
Happy oreo day, baby!RE Broccoli. it was one of the bubs first foods and he still loves it. He also loves steamed tofu, white beans, spicy italian sausage and stewed tomatoes, so I've pretty much got no idea how he sets his food preferences.Though, I'm relatively certain an oreo would be on the list.And lockdown? I only get lockdown when there is a big chunk of paper in there that must. not. be. removed.
she's looking pretty happy about it haha.
Go baby go!
She is so so so cute and looks just like you. I love seeing the pictures. More more! ;)Melyni in PA
First, Re: BroccoliI love broccoli.. although as a kid I did not like the tops (texture issue).. but my mom steamed fresh.Kid also LOVES broccoli and eats it several times a week.. she always has loved it. It is literally one of her favorite foods. And considering it was always a choice at the Disney kid buffet.. I think liking broccoli is more common than not.
Melyni,thank you.. Kid doesn't look much like me so I spent the first 4.5 years of parenting with the whole "oh she must look like her Daddy" crap all the time! .. so I am loving that she actually resembles me!!
Ang,a Dorito now and then isn't going to kill anyone... and who doesn't love a Dorito?I remember the first time Kid had some at a xmas party.. she did not move from in front of that bowl the whole evening!
eurydice,She's looking pretty happy about itindeed... plus she loves watching herself in the photo booth.Kid does too and if you go into the photo booth you can see tons of pictures she takes of herself when I'm not in the room... she did get in trouble for that but secretly I think they are adorable!
Oh boy! You'll never get her off the junk now!Yay baby!!
dh sarcastically calls the real oreos "kill you o's" just to rile me up. lol
