Like mother, like daughter, part 2

Filed under: Family, Motherhood, Personal — Tags: — llcall @ 8:15 am

I’m sure you thought I was exaggerating Addison’s dislike of pureed foods.  Even I thought I was exaggerating her dislike of pureed foods.  But alas, she can’t stand the stuff.  Nor can she stand the majority of non-pureed foods we’ve experimented with.  BUT we finally found our ace in the hole.  Our baby has a favorite food!  Huzzah!

Can you guess what it is?

I’ll give you a hint . . . it was my favorite food beginning in toddlerhood to the present day.

I’ll give you another hint . . . she doesn’t just chew it up and swallow it (not surprisingly, since she has no teeth).  Rather, she sucks all the insides out and leaves just the flimsy skin behind, which coincidentally is how I often eat these too (although I tend to finish off the skin as well).

The first person to guess correctly will be rewarded with . . . an enormous sense of accomplishment.



  1. Rice-a-roni…? 🙂 No, wait…ravioli?

    • Haha…it would be amazingly difficult to eat Rice-a-roni like that!

    • We haven’t tried kumquats yet…when I find out what they are, maybe we will 😉 Grape is a good guess; you’re the closest so far.

  4. This is grossing me out just typing this, but it’s got to be those sick little baby food jar hot dogs. Do I win?

    • Actually, even I don’t eat those things anymore 😉

      • p.s. it would be amazingly gross to eat chicken sticks like that, wouldn’t it?!

  5. Good guesses all (except for Neal who is gross and coming awfully close to losing commenting privileges–I will mark you as spam, buddy, so watch it…) but no winner yet!

  6. Well, my first thought was pizza (your favorite food, right?), but I think kiwi would fit the description a little better.

  9. Peaches…

  10. Ah, I needed “an enormous sense of accomplishment” right now. Thanks so very much!

    I confess the question was as easy as pie (has she tried pumpkin yet?). No guessing required.

    I’m grateful for the lovely daughter I acquired through my son, Neal; it pays to pay attention!

    And it helps to be in love with this Baby Beauty! Gratitude and thanks mark the season.
