But we do. It seems that spring may finally have joined us here in Maryland and Alex celebrated by planting seeds with the guys.
He bought some flowers along with corn, squash, carrots, broccoli, and pumpkins. I think the theory is that if they grow them, they will eat them. The theory proved to be flawed however when Alex asked, “Once these grow, do you guys promise to eat them?” And they answered without missing a beat that, no, they will not eat them. Then Sam reiterated that the only vegetables he likes are peas and corn, but that we really don’t need to go buy any pea seeds.
In fact I don’t know if Jack even bothered to answer, as it really is not an issue for him as I don’t think he has consumed a fruit or a vegetable since he was less than a year old. In fact, I don’t think he’s consumed much more than cereal for the past 6 months. Today, whilst the rest of us were eating chicken for lunch and Alex was telling Jack that he needs food to live, Jack replied, “I doesn’t need food.” Touche.
I’m hopeful that Quinn will eat the vegetables. Although we may have to plant ranch dressing seeds for that.
