The Olympics according to Jessica

So, our family was all sitting together watching the Closing Ceremony. The part came where all the athletes were all walking into the 'Bird's Nest' and mugging for the cameras. Jessica sat and stared as they all gave the obligatory peace sign and smiled. After awhile she looked at me and said, "Mom, why do they all like the number two so much?".

On a commercial I asked all the kids what their favorite sports were to watch these past two weeks. I got the answers I thought I would...

Bry: swimming
Britt: gymnastics
Ben: I forget
Jessica: Hide and Seek, Playing Tag and Playing Princess

Bon Appetit!

It takes years to train a palate. It's important to expose your child to many differing tastes and textures. My friend Becky has done this. When her girls were toddlers they would eat things like roast duck and brussel sprouts. My Jessica......not so much:
Disclaimer: No I did not let her eat this.
