It was like a miracle. He's 2.8 and for the last year or so the only fruit or vegetables he ate were bananas, cucumber and pizza with tomato sauce on it (but not pasta with the same sauce on ).
This morning he asked for a snack. I offered him carrot sticks on principle even though he had never been known to eat them.
DS: I don't like carrot sticks. I want celery.
me: ??!!! We haven't got any celery. Shall I get you a carrot stick?
DS: Carrot sticks, mmm delicious, my favourite! (rubs tummy)
me (pushing my luck): Do you want one or two?
DS: Three. No, four.
He scoffed the four, repeating 'mmm delicious, my favourite' and asked for 3 more, which he ate
What has happened? Has the real ds been abducted by aliens and replaced with a Stepford style robot? Or did we bring the wrong child home from the soft play area yesterday? He definitely has the same colour hair as my ds.
Is he a fan of Peppa Pig? Rebecca and Richard Rabbit love carrots and declare them to be 'delicious'. My DS says 'dishus' and 'squeak squeak' when presented with a carrot but alas does not eat them. Your story gives me hope!
FaintlyMacabre - yes he IS a Peppa Pig fan and we have been watching a lot lately owing to a general switch to Milkshake to avoid Big Cook Little Cook I honestly think you might be onto something there. I have caught him pretending to be a bunny lately as well.
