Monday and Tuesday she begs for orange juice for breakfast. By Friday, "I don't like orange juice!" exclaimed with big crocodile tears and with her most feel-sorry-for-me voice.
"I want water," sniff. I suppose that water is much better for her than orange juice, but it drives me nuts when she can't seem to make up her mind until after I pour a glass for her.
Last Wednesday she loved spaghetti; a week later she doesn't like the same sauce. Tacos? Don't get me started.
If you have more than one child, I know you have one just like her.
My very innovative sister mentioned in passing that she felt like making a list for her very picky kid, so I decided it was a brilliant idea for my 4 year old. I just started the list this morning, so I'll add to the list when I think of more things. I decided to leave off her daily diet staples like Goldfish crackers and Lucky Charms (Yes, I did win health advocate of the year). And I hope the list turns into a book some day (ha ha), but for now, I'm just happy to have a few things that she can't argue about. At the very least, instead of "I don't like that," I'll teach her to say, "I'm not in the mood."
