Here are all the excuses I've heard from Eli this evening as to why he cannot eat broccoli:
- It's yucky
- It's ugly
- It's spicy
- Broccoli "hurts my feelings"
- It's green. "I don't eat green things"
So now we are at an impasse. I have told Mr. Eli he cannot do anything tonight until he finishes one piece of broccoli.
He has had the same piece of broccoli in his mouth for the last hour, and I am having to keep him with me while I do dishes, fold laundry, clean the bathroom, and now blog. (Otherwise he'll spit it out, don't you see...)
This should be an interesting evening... I guess I forgot that Eli is as stubborn as I am.
(Can you see the broccoli bulge in his cheek?)
