Drew has been really into hot chocolate the past couple of weeks, and we didn't have any marshmallows to go in them. so I bought a bag of mini marshmallows at the store. "Drew, if you eat all of your dinner you can have hot chocolate with a surprise- marshmallows!" We bribed. (Yeah we are horrible at keeping surprises around here.)
"Nah, I don't think I like marshmallows. I tried them before and didn't like them," Drew stated.
I was perplexed. Surely he must be mistaken. The boy who loves anything sugar does not like marshmallows? Is he sick? This isn't the Drew that I know. Then I realized. He was thinking about the mushrooms we made him try before. "Oh honey, they aren't mushrooms." So I showed him the bag and let him smell the goodness that is marshmallows. He quickly ate his organic broccoli and hamburger on whole wheat bun (hey these details are important, I don't want you to think I feed my children junk all of the time). So of course, the photo crazed mommarazzi I am, I documented this momentous occasion in his life.
The First marshmallow EVAR!
He tries it....
HE likes it!
What we affectionately call "lukewarm chocolate".
We have a happy child, and surprisingly he went to sleep well that night even after all the sugar. Go figure!
