It’s a big day for the Cumings family!
It begins, unfortunately, with a dentist appointment for me, but continues with a play date for Zoe (and me), what I hope will be a lovely lunch and nap, possibly a trip to the grocery store, and then dinner with new friends.
I know. The glamour of our lives is dizzying.
Contrary to popular belief, the life of a pastor with a young child in a small town is not awash in social engagements, so I am truly looking forward to today’s events.
In anticipation, I have been telling Zoe that we are going to a dinner party where we will play with new friends and eat Special Soup. (Pro Tip: “Special” is a powerful adjective with the preschool crowd. Use it wisely.)
Her meals at home for the past few days have consisted largely of cheese, apples, grapes, or the ever-popular “I’m all done!” (nothing at all). So I’m hoping that, if I keep talking up this soup like it’s going out of style, maybe, just maybe, she will actually eat it.
If you’re wondering what that sound is, I’m pretty sure it’s the Internet laughing.
What are your best tips for tempting a contrary eater?
Or, what are you looking forward to today?
