Pears

Layton has a thing about trialing food.

I’m not sure if it’s texture, taste or she’s just having a hard time getting use to eating food. By about the 8th bite she starts to gag like she doesnt like it. Then the 3rd or 4th sitting with the same food she gags right away and refuses the food. So we’re just doing one two pack of food and moving on. We just finished peas and that went well, until she gagged and shivered.

Today she tried pears. Of course Tinleigh is right there beside me observing. She asked me if she could eat pears. I told her no. In her two year old jargon she explained to me how she could.
Tin: I know!! Layton have teeth?!
Me: No, she does not.
Tin: My get my teeth out. My be a baby. Then my eat pears too!!!
Me: Tinleigh your teeth aren’t coming out and that wont make you a baby. It doesnt work like that.
Tin: yeah huh mom. My have no teeth and my eat pears.
I answered her with an “okay sweetie”. I just didnt feel like explaining everything. Trialing Layton on foods might be a lot harder than I first thought. Now, not only do I have to keep a watchful eye out for reactions. I also have to keep Tinleigh from eating the baby food and start explaining to her why she can’t eat what layton eats. I wish I could say I see this going well, but I see some tantrums in our future.
