pet peeves

Ah crap. I'm gonna have to turn in my membership to the Tyler Florence Sprout food fan club since I read this blog post. His theory on avoiding picky eaters makes it sounds like parents have a choice to introduce their kids to new foods, at least until the age of 3. So I guess his kids never went through the terrible twos?! Lemme tell you Tyler, it's hard to introduce new food when the kid stopped opening his mouth to anything he didn't like at 18-months-old. I hate it when people take all the credit for their kids' eating or sleep habits. Luck has as much to do with it as parental effort.
Oh, and another thing that bugs me. Husbands who borrow their friend's scooter, crash and break both arms. Feeding a grown man Cheerios is nowhere near as endearing as feeding them to a 2-year-old. Yeah, so maybe I'm a little grouchy this week. But, either way, Tyler's theory still bugs me.


  1. On the other hand, this might be time to force-feed hubbie some veggies - it's not like he can make himself something else to eat!
