The Strawberry Wars

My Abby adores strawberries. Wonderful, huh? A child who loves fruit. That's a good thing, right?

The only problem is that Abby loves only the first bite of strawberry. The sweet delectable, juicy bit on the tip. A few days ago I spent a great deal of my time tracking down partially eaten strawberries. Did you know that ripe, juicy, red strawberries and carpet don't mix?

I thought I'd found all the missing berries. Then I opened the fridge and discovered a juice cup filled with strawberries. Ones with no bites missing! Yay!!

BUT upon closer inspection, I noticed that it wasn't just strawberries in the cup. There was also 1/3 of a banana and a single chocolate chip couple floating in a few inches of water.

The Adventurous One has been felled by a yucky stomach bug today though. Which means lots of sympathy, lots of Barney (ugh), and lots of "Mmmmmmmmmooooommmmmmmyyyyyy". And a cease-fire in the Strawberry Wars.

Well, the rest of the strawberry looks yukky!

Kids- don't you just love them. There is a positive in that at least 2/3 of the banana was eaten and the choc chip wasn't! Hope Abby is feeling better

Tracey, it might have had something to do with grubby little toddler fingers that squish and mash and otherwise mangle things.

Oh God Barney. Forget the tips only eaten strawberries - it is Barney that would be doing my head in.

The kids on that show all have the most annoying voices.

She was getting ready to make a super-sonic fruit smoothie drink and then got distracted, obviously.

Hope she feels well again soon. (Sick children are no fun for anyone)

Barney is enough to make anyone chuck.
