Strawberries

Lately in this house the food Anthony most dislikes is the evil strawberry. Typically a favorite fruit among children and adults alike. It's not the flavor that bothers him as he'll eat strawberry yogurt and strawberry ice cream. It's the texture of the fresh strawberries. He'll eat broccoli like it's the only food on the planet, but will not even choke down one bite of a strawberry.

So like any good mom, yesterday I tried to trick him. I made pancakes, which he LOVES, and then threw a couple of fresh strawberries in one. I gave him a bite of the strawberry pancake (after he'd eaten several regular pancakes) and he immediately spit it out, picked the strawberry out of the bite, and put the pancake back in his mouth. I gave him another bite of course, thinking that he'd miss the strawberry. But no, same reaction. Spit out the pancake, picked out the strawberry, and put the bite back in his mouth.

I don't think I've ever met anyone with an aversion to strawberries!

He is like his uncle Ryan- Only it is eggs with Ryan- He will find the little pieces in things and pick them out-

Isaac doesn't like them either! His older brothers devour them!
