Tonight we ventured into the uncharted world of broccoli. I prepared it just like I have all the other foods we have given them (plenty of steam and a blender) and we sat down in front of them to feed them the broccoli.
It was not a good sign when Andrea says to me out of the side of her mouth, “I should taste it, but I really don’t want to.”
“Me either.” I replied. “Too bad we can’t mix some mayonaise in there with it.”
“Or some cheese.” Andrea added.
The books say to make happy faces as they taste new foods. Luckily I’m pretty sure laughter counts as a happy face. As soon as Swee’Pea tasted it, the look on her face as she made eye contact was me was, “What the hell is that?!” In fact, on her second spoonful (as I smiled and made “yum-yum” sounds) she gagged. She wretched. Luckily she didn’t throw it up.
Over on the other side, TheMonk, being one who has never turned down a meal, struggled to accept each bite. Each bite looked painful but he gamely took each spoonful while smacking his lips and furrowing his brow.
Luckily for the twins, we took pity on them. We stopped feeding them and will try again tomorrow.
(TheMonk and Swee’Pea, if you’re reading this in the future, it’s the last time I’m letting you up from eating your vegetables. Besides, with some mayo or cheese, you can eat anything that’s green.)
