Yesterday, M came right up to me at 10 am and said, "I want a bejabow snack."
Bowl of porridge?
(Stunned pause) Okay! Let's go! Upstairs! Vegetable snack, here we come!
It was grocery day, so I had exactly 2 bags of frozen broccoli and edemame, and 4 whole carrots other than the standard canned-green-beans for vegetables (the only one I can count on them to always eat). I've never peeled and sliced a carrot so fast in my life! The boys climbed up into their booster chairs with great anticipation of this vegetable snack, and with a flourish, both boys received a plate with 3 carrot sticks and what would become an unbelievable amount of ranch dressing. I suspected this might wind up being a snack of ranch dressing, where the carrots are used like a fun dip stick, but I figured it was worth a shot.
|Look, Mom, I really am chewing it up!|
|N actually said, "I like carrots!"|
Then, they asked for more. HUH?! Okay, carrot number two got peeled and sliced and it went down the hatch, too. My battery was dead or I would have snapped a shot of them covered in ranch dressing, but I was happy to have even one photo of the miracle that happened in our house yesterday. I didn't care what they ate the rest of the day because they each ate nearly a WHOLE carrot!
I swear on the Holy Bible this is true. If I were making up miracles, it would have been that they woke up potty trained.
