“Alphabet Soup” – A is for apples, C is for cheese, P is for pickle, M is for milkshake (yogurt), B is for bagel, R is for raisins, B is for beans, C is for corn, H is for hotdog, Nn is for noodles, and P is for pudding
B has really been into the story Alphabet Mystery. In the story, the Capital I threatens to turn the lowercase letters into alphabet soup and he thinks that is hilarious. So this week we called our Muffin Tin Monday meal, “alphabet soup”. B LOVED it! He actually sat down at the table and ate for 30 min. which is unheard of for him. He didn’t eat the veggies or the hotdog but hey let’s not get crazy! =)
At the end of the meal, the spaghetti noodles were snakes and the raisins were ants and the pickle was a crocodile and a big chase began but I didn’t mind because he was eating bites while playing.
Two questions I would really like to hear your opinions about:
What do you say to your child when he/she tries something and then says, “I don’t like it”?
What do you say to your child when he/she doesn’t want to try something new?
