Strange child

Okay. Why is it that my 4 year old will eat an entire bowl of rice and fresh spinach with an orange sesame dressing on top, but wont even think about touching the piece of chicken I made to go along with it.
She'll eat an entire bag of Pistacios but goes insane if she is even in the vicinity of popcorn. All the crusts (or as she calls them skins) of every piece of bread she eats has to be taken off, courtesy of her Abeula. She likes Broccoli but won't even think about eating corn. Isn't that every child's favorite pseudo vegetable?
She loves cottage cheese but looks at you funny if you try to hand her a piece of craft sliced cheese.
All the skin has to be peeled off of every piece of fruit and her absolute favorite lunch... Vietnamese spring rolls with shrimp and pork, with a peanut sauce to dip them it.
But, she is obsessed with gum and candy (can only have 1 a day), and could watch TV all day long and be completely content if I let her. (only 1 hour a day).
So, don't think she is perfect!

You can't blame me for this eating habit. I didn't raise any fussy eaters. (ha) (

Nice one Becky! But I think the Cookie is already out of the jar!

At least she'll eat something! PJ is still the pickyiest (sp?) eater EVER. He eats very little of anything (as I know you have observed).

I bought Leah a jar of peanut butter today (we haven't had any since our trip to Spain with you guys last summer) and as I was spreading it on her bread for her, the first thing she said was, "Remember how Cailin didn't like the little bits in hers?". It must've really made an impression on her!

Kids remember the craziest things. She actually ate some chunky peanut butter a couple weeks ago. She was desperate. It was either that or a cheese sandwich. Again...crazy kid.
