Now I think that a tomato is technically a fruit which would make ketchup a fruit, but that just doesn’t sound right. Vegetable sounds much better.
Hailey is such a picky eater that I am really hoping that ketchup counts as a vegetable since that’s about all she will eat. And she doesn’t like fruit either. About the only fruit she will eat is jelly. Is that even a fruit?
When I give her almost any food she will usually try it. Then take it out of her mouth, hand it to me and say, “Gucky!” (yucky) We go back and forth with this throughout every meal.
“Hailey, try your food.”
“If you try it you might like it. Just try it.”
Hailey puts her food in her mouth, takes it out and hands it to me and says “GUCKY!”
“It’s not yucky. You liked broccoli last week so I bought some more. Now please eat it.”
“GUCKY Mommy, GUCKY!”
“How about you eat some of your chicken then? You like chicken.”
I do not give her a cookie and I have never given in and given her one no matter how much she demands and screams and cries for it. “We’re eating dinner. We don’t have cookies for dinner.”
“Yo-Ye-O. Peeaazzz! Yo-Ye-O.” (Oreo. Please! Oreo.)
“After you eat your dinner you can have an Oreo.”
“All done. Me yook ousssside. All done.” (Me look outside)
And that is how most of our meals go.
