Eating Salad

"Hey Brooklyn, do you want some more sala...what the heck??? What are you putting in your mouth?"

"I'm eating my salad, Mom."

"Where's your fork?"

"It's right here, Mom," Brooklyn answered, pointing to her unused fork sitting next to her plate.

"Ummm, what are you using to eat with," I asked, a little scared to hear her answer.

"I'm using my mermaids!" she happily announced.

"I see," I said, shaking my head. "Makes perfect sense to me."

I just love the way kids think. Mermaids as utensils - brilliant! Much cuter than a fork could ever be =)

Hey at least she is eating salad, the dreaded green stuff here. My oldest will not touch it. But my younger two love it smothered in Ranch dressing. That counts right??

If my daughter would eat salad I wouldn't care what she used!!

Diana said...

Thank goodness it isn't just my child.

Abby said...

Yeah! She is eating salad. One of my friends kids will often only eat the healthy stuff if I "help" (read feed it to her). Whatever it takes. BROOKLYN ATE HER SALAD!

hey, great way to get her to eat her salad!

Nicole said...

I love it. Thanks for the tip(LOL). Maybe I'll have my son use his Hot Wheel cars to eat salad.

Adrienne said...

oh goodness, well at least she uses something, my son picks his nose and then just uses his hands. I know. It grosses me out too.

Sara said...

I'd be thrilled if my kid ate salad!

Umm, doesn't everybody eat their salad with mermaids??? Seriously though, I wouldn't care what "utensils" my daughter used if she would only eat salad, or any vegetable. Luckily she eats some veggies at preschool but she won't touch them at home.

It's not salad!! It's seaweed. Mermaids eat seaweed:) But I wonder do they put ranch dressing on it? Hmmmm. Whatever, that mermaid is amazing.. send her on over here.. we need some serious help in the veggie eating department! Including me!
