bananas about bananas

Most of you may not realize that Maggie DOES NOT LIKE bananas and *never* has and yes, I mean never. It was one of her first baby foods and she refused it. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over (you get the picture) again.

It felt like one of my greatest mom failure--what child *doesn't* like bananas!? They are healthy and portable. It doesn't get any better than that. So, flash forward 3 years later and this morning, for the first time in her life, Maggie ate an entire banana. And liked it.


Unlike his sister, Curren took to bananas with a ferocious appetite from day 1. Thank you, Jesus. He eats one every morning.

Today, Maggie commented on how bruised the banana was and I said, "No, that means it's ripe! You want it to be somewhat speckled." I peeled it and had her smell it, commenting on how sweet it was. She was instantly intrigued and took a bite. Then, she asked politely for her own!

Seriously, biggest win ever. Well, one of them.

Moral of the story: don't give up on our kids. They'll come around at some point.
