Raindrops on Roses, whiskers on kittens…

“…bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with string ~ these are a few of my favorite things!”

Apparently Julie Andrew and the dear Von Trapp children hadn’t tasted the newest and latest craze in culinary delights. Maybe Daddy and I spend too much time watching ‘Bizaree Foods’ on the Travel Channel. Who would have guessed that show was on after 8pm for a REASON.

Its been a great pleasure to serve to avocado, we giggle when you plow through a teething biscuit, turkey’s fine as long as its off mom’s finger and despite a few good carrot days ~ your no longer a big fan. Egg yolks used to be a favorite but now your tastes have…matured?

Perhaps it’s the love of your kitty that has taken you over because for the love of god I can’t keep you away from the cat food!!!!! At LEAST once a day either your Daddy or I catch you in the kitty bowl.

(for grandma) Each and every time we catch you, its just seconds before one of those nasty bites of feline fodder cross your sweet and perfect lips.

(for the rest of the world) 90% of the time before we notice that you are just too quiet for your own good, you have already harvested a tasty little morsel of goodness into your aforementioned steel trap of a mouth and are happily chomp, chomp, chomping away.

And I do mean happily. There isn’t a food we have tried serving you that you haven’t been hesitant about at least at first. There isn’t a food in this house that’s hasn’t taken some getting used to. And clearly, there isn’t a food that we can get you to eat two times in a row without you giving us a look your not supposed to be able to form well until your 7th year of life. With of course…this one exception.
