Pity poor Baby Boo. In spite of my just-blogged about Nice Matters Award, --for which, by the way, I'm poaching Something Baby Blue's cool new sexy/nice button that she created for the occasion, because it's a little less 'pinky nice' for the old sidebar-- I did something not-so-nice to the wee one.
Well, at least from his perspective perhaps.
Since he's been doing so well with his new breakfast routine this week, when he's been getting a bit of freshly smooshed banana, papaya and baby rice, and his new dinner routine when he's been getting a slightly larger serving of baby rice... I decided to offer him baby rice and a smooshed vegetable with dinner this evening. My chosen vegetable?
How mean am I? I don't think MF had to eat peas his entire first year, primarily because I'm not a big fan of them myself, and here I am offering them to Baby Boo as his very first vegetable. (Ok, I've always detested the things, although, in all fairness, they're starting to grow on me.) But MF actually enjoys peas and corn and will eat them happily either on their own or mixed into something we create for him. So when I pulled the big bag of sweet peas out of the freezer, I thought, Hey, why the h*ll not!
So I threw a few tablespoons of peas into my new favorite toy and voilà, perfectly smooshed peas in seconds. And although I wasn't really expecting much --after all, they're peas!--when mixed into the baby rice, Baby Boo seemed all-too-happy to eat them.
Well, eat them, smear them all over his face... same difference, right?
Of all the vegetables in the world, my mommy offered me peas! Can you believe it?
