Simon is a very picky eater. We try to keep it light. We don't wage war over food. Once in a while we'll tell him that we didn't like ________ (tomatoes, beans, etc.) when we were his age, either. Maybe he'll like _______ (strawberries, watermelon, on and on) when he's older, we'll say. As he watched me eat some grapes tonight, we had this exchange.
-Mom, when I'm ten, I will love strawberries and grapes.
-Okay, great. But, you know, if you want, you can love them now.
