Winning Excuse of the Year for Not Eating

Posted Sep 19 2010 12:00am
Tonight I tried to get Eliza to try pasta (for the 100th time). When she was presented with one of these

(not the three pieces featured in the photo, but just ONE piece) she offered up this excuse (while all teary eyed)
"Eliza can't try pasta, it is prickly and makes booboos on Eliza's knees."

If there was ever a sign that I should just accept Eliza's liquid diet and move on, this was it.

How in holy hell can pasta make booboos on your knees, prickly or not?

Oh and please refrain from commenting that (a) one needs to present a food multiple times before a child will accept it or (b) many children are picky eaters. I would gnaw my own arm off to have a picky eater, maybe both arms.

I give up.
