Mister has found a new favorite phrase… “I don’t like that, Mommy!”
Most typically uttered at the dinner table, when I put his dinner in front of him. Before he even takes a bit… “I don’t like that, Mommy.”
How in the world can he know he doesn’t like it if he hasn’t even taken a bite?
Tonight, I served peas with dinner.
“I don’t like that, Mommy!” Mister bemoans when I put his plate down.
To which I reply, “Mister, you haven’t tried it yet, which means you can’t say you don’t like it. Why do you think you won’t like it?”
Excuse me? It’s green? It’s yucky because it’s green? You can’t eat it because it’s green?
Now I have two green haters in the house.
He certainly doesn’t get his food color snobbery from me!
Of course, the last six days of this week, the food he claimed not to like was not green. It just so happened that tonight he had a comeback when I asked him why he didn’t like it.
So, I am at my wits end.
Now what do I do? Did you have a food color snob in your home? Is it just a phase? How did you conquer it?
