If It's Okay for a Princess...

At first glance, you might think the disturbing part of this photo is that my daughter is drinking out of a bowl. Really, that's the least of the problems depicted in this photo. First and foremost, it is WHAT she is drinking. Are you ready? Green bean juice. Or more accurately, the watery remnants of what canned Del Monte no salt green beans come packed in. (Good thing I keep "shit loads" on hand...) The girls recently decided they like their green beans "juicy" which means they don't want me to drain the watery crap out. These are the same girls who won't take a bite of hamburger or chicken nuggets or macaroni and cheese or anything else normal children actually eat. But green bean run-off? Yes please may I have another!

The second most disturbing part is that when I told her not to drink from the bowl (does one use a spoon to eat green bean water like a soup one wonders?), Lulu indignantly replied, "That's how Belle ate when she had dinner with the Beast!" Oh, well then, carry on.



  1. Green been run off - ick! But so funny!

    Have you read Cinderella Ate My Daughter? I have been meaning, too, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Love your new header.

    Oh, and we are going to Disney World in September so I might be taking you up on your offer for advice . . . if that's still ok.

  2. My kids' absolute favorite is what they call "pea water." That's the water that the frozen peas were cooked in. Terrific when your kids are shouting out requests for "pea water!" I swear, they just sit around thinking of randoms combinations of things to refuse and to request in order to ensure that we never stop twitching over the anxiety of what to feed them.

  3. Your kids are totally drinking bean urine. You rock.

    But not as much as I rock in not returning emails. It meant a lot to hear from you and I swear on all things beany that I will return the message soon.
