Our Life as a Poorly-Written Sitcom
We were having steamed broccoli and cauliflower for dinner the other night and when Abby saw the cauliflower, she immediately informed us that she did not like it and wouldn't eat it. Having watched tons of badly-written 80's family sitcoms, I knew exactly what to do! I told her she didn't have to eat all of it, but she had to at least try it. She took the tiniest bite she possibly could and smiled. "Mmmmm! I love cauliflower! It kind of tastes like broccoli!" she said. Then proceeded to eat all of the cauliflower before she ate everything else. I can't believe that trick actually worked... we'll see what happens next time. Until then, I guess cauliflower has pushed broccoli out of the top spot on Abby's favourite veggie list. I am certainly not going to discourage that.
