What Does It Taste Like?

For a lot of us it’s the challenges around the table that get most of our attention — getting everyone to sit still(ish) and eat the healthy stuff — managing the ever-changing whims “too spicy, too hot, too creamy, too slippery….” whisking away the endless glasses of spilled milk. But as in life, kids can sometimes surprise you… way out-foodie-ing you when you least expect it.

Ask a kid what something tastes like and you never know what kind of answer you’ll get. Luca got inspired to try to taste two things at a time the other night and came up with some descriptions that were so succinct and spot-on that they made me a little envious. It was also interesting to see him orchestrate taking a bite out of a peach and a pear at the same time – no easy feat when you have a small, 5 year old mouth. I mean when is the last time you even thought of doing that?

A few of these gems went right down onto one of the notecards we scribble on while we sit together around the dinner table, a family journal of sorts. We wrote about this project earlier and you can check out the details here. And in case you were wondering….this is what a year and a half of dinnertime memories looks like.

  1. Really enjoyed this post, Stacie. I am going to start drawing Caleb and Sadie out on the taste of things more. I am often in awe of their sense of food adventure (think sushi or stinky cheese), but then scratch my head when they won’t eat something as “normal” as pizza.

  2. Hi Stacie! Amazing. I really enjoy your drawings and you make family time so special. Kids always treasure these fun and unique family memories. Every little things in life like this count to have a good childhood. I love how you spend time with your family!
