The Celery Chronicles


You know what's coming, don't you?


Especially if you have children or nieces/nephews of your own, right?


Yep, you guessed it:

Next time, I won't bother with the celery. I'll just tell the kid he can have some peanut butter on a spoon :)

I'm going to giggle and roll over laughing on this one for a while!! It's classic!!

Linda said...

I have neices and a nephew.....they do this type of thing all the time!! One likes to remove all the pizza toppings, cheese and all! Whats the point of that?

The point is, there a point... there's always a point (unless there isn't)...if he eats just the crust... he'd rather have a piece of bread... if he eats the toppings and leaves the crust... well... kinda like the peanut butter... just put some pepperoni, tomato sauce and cheese in a bowl... nuke it and give it to him... problem solved and a REALLY easy child to feed. My daughter used to eat 'Not' dogs, she didn't like hotdogs, she liked fish sticks... we'd all have hotdogs, she'd have a fish stick in a bun... a 'Not' dog.

Rachel (by the way if you figure out a way to get them to EAT the celery let me know..nothing I've tried has worked!)

Hmmm - now there's a!
My kids will eat the celery at the same time - so long as the filling is cream cheese....funny that.

How cute is that? My son used to simply go to the silverware drawer, get a great big spoon, and eat all the peanut butter he could get on it. He never liked the celery.

Years ago when my son was little, a neighborhood boy came over to play. They're still best buds all these years later.
Anyway, lunch time rolled around and I was all set to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, right? when the little visitor told me he didn't like peanut butter. What the hell are you talking about? Who doesn't like peanut butter? I had no Plan B.

Ah Angie, now I know my kid is different! He eats the celery! Did when he was little and still does it today. Never had to complain about him eating vegetables - he loves 'em! Of course, his friends all think he's weird....

LOL, you guys! Just for the record, my kids *did* eat vegetables like broccoli, carrots, and green beans without hassle until they started school. . .well, that, and until their slightly older cousin told them the whole green beans I fix are really slugs!
