When I first had the kids (Myah and Brett) I was concerned about getting payback for how much of a picky eater that I was. Surprisingly though, both Myah and Brett never really put up too much of a fuss with meals. They tried to as they got older, but now they will pretty much eat anything. Salad, veggies, you name it, they will eat it.
All I could do was just thank God that he is not vengeful and he truly blessed me with such wonderful eaters.
God does however have a sense of humor. He was laughing because he knew Evie was coming. He just waited until I was older and more patient to deal with it.
She will cry through whatever it is she doesn't like, until she gets what she does like (sweets). Green Beans, Peas, anything with meat in it, even Mac N Cheese she hates. She only likes the sweet veggies (carrots, squash, sweet potatoes) and bananas and applesauce. Hates pears, peaches, will sometimes eat prunes depending on her mood. I tried Mac n cheese for the first time tonight. She screamed through it, so I gave up. I then went to peas. She ate it but she sure put up a fuss until they were done (this one she would at least swallow and not gag on). Once I busted out the applesauce for dessert she was just fine.
