I can’t tell you how happy I am that Gracen is a good eater. As a mama, providing her with proper nutrition is at the tippy top of my list of goals, right next to making sure she gets proper sleep. Of course I’d like to attribute her good eating habits to the way we introduced her to food initially (and the way we continue to deal with her eating in general), but it could very well just be that we are lucky. Or perhaps it’s a little bit of both. Either way, if she was a picky little thing, as many munchkins are, you’d better bet I’d use St. Patrick’s Day to trick her into eating as many green things as possible in one single day of the year. It would most likely involve some crazy story involving pesky leprechauns and lucky green super foods, but for now, let’s just be thankful I don’t have to go there. Today Gracen and I ate green foods at each meal, and she was more than happy to do so!
