I Hate That

Piper loves trying new things. Usually just so that she can tell us she hates it. She’s an adventurous eater  complainer. Even when we fix her favorite things, like basagna, she gripes about the service. Food hating is all the rage in Piper world.

Here’s a list of foods she’s currently hating: stir fry, hot dogs, green grapes, bananas, salad, corn, apple juice, green beans, grilled cheese sandwiches, cold cereal, and water.

She’d like to subsist on macaroni and cheese. Anytime we put something in front of her that isn’t macaroni and cheese she says the same thing: “I Hate That!” But. Then. She finishes every morsel on her plate. For all of her complaining, she’s a great eater.

Sometimes she forgets to complain at the beginning of the meal, so she saves all of her offenses for after the food is gone. “That wasn’t any good,” Piper says, examining her empty plate. “I didn’t like any of it. Can I have some more, please?”

    • She’ll eat sushi and lo mein and almost any vegetable that’s crunchy. She’s not a fan of crepes but she keeps trying them. When Piper sees something she isn’t familiar with, she asks for it. Usually she eat one bite and rejects it but she wants to try it. She’ll drink water is she asks for it, but not if I give it to her. I suspect it’s about more than water 🙂

    • Exactly. I spent too much time ranting about her ungratefulness until I realized she was just complaining to complain. It’s shocking how much less complaining there is when I ignore it 🙂 Thanks for reading!
