Nature or nurture? As the journaling says,"every mother wishes for her child to get one just like him." My child certainly did, as did I! My oldest son is just like me, with a stubborn streak a mile long, and his son is just the same. We got it from my dad. Invited to Grandma's house for Sunday dinner, Gary refused to eat. Is being a picky eater a genetic trait or a learned behavior? Hard to say. That is something my dad says his children learned from our mother. I never thought of myself as a picky eater, but my husband confirms what my dad maintains. My son's are terrible... will not eat vegetables, which they did not learn from me! I love veggies and served them with every meal with the same results you see in the photos! My sons have an overwhelming aversion to the color green! So when you combine an aversion to veggies and a stubborn streak a mile long in both father and son , this is what you get! Karma!
I used this Liz Qualman sketch for the layout:
The papers and embellishments are imaginsce "Lucy bird" collection and the the large black alphabets are Thickers.
This companion page of Gary helping me warm up those beans that he wouldn't eat is done with DIE CUTS WITH A VIEW "Nana's kids" paper pack.
