we were eating a wonderful dinner the other night of sauteed fresh veggies over brown basmati rice, and max (8) was struggling with the idea that he had to eat one small slice of yam. after a very long time at the table, he finally ate it.
jeannie said to me, “max just ate the yam, and didn’t complain or gag or anything!”
i asked him, “see, it was pretty good, wasn’t it?”
he responded, “well, i would eat it again if i had to; but i wouldn’t recommend it.”
