Bon Appetit!

It takes years to train a palate. It's important to expose your child to many differing tastes and textures. My friend Becky has done this. When her girls were toddlers they would eat things like roast duck and brussel sprouts. My Jessica......not so much:
Disclaimer: No I did not let her eat this.

Your disclaimers crack me up! Do readers actually scold you sometimes? Too funny.
When my daughter was a wee one (she is now 15) her diet consisted of catsup sandwiches, catsup with a bit of chicken, catsup with a bite of hotdog, catsup and mac n cheese, catsup on a spoon, catsup in her chicken noodle soup. Guess what? She no longer stomachs the stuff! And when my MIL or my own mother would get onto me about her eating habits, I would say "ok, I'll work on it" and continue to give her catsup on everything. Unbelievably, she is healthy, strong, smart, and beautiful. It's a wonder she can stand upright with all that garbage I fed her! :)

I'll make her some duck. Some lamb and roasted vegetables. Then she can drench it in mustard. LOL.

Soo funny (and adorable!) It makes me think of that song "Mama said there'd be days like this!"

Debby told me the conversation at the park, and I say you rock and knowing your big kids, I want to be a mommy just like YOU!!!

Sometimes the only way I can get my son to eat anything is by either putting Aromat Salt (I'm not sure if you get it in your country) or tomato sauce!!
