Our experiment with green cabbage serves to illustrate an important point when you’re dealing with kids: they’re fickle. Mark my words (in fact, look them up on the site, they’re there for all eternity), the kids liked red cabbage. Loved it. Inhaled it. Which led me to believe that they’d likewise inhale green cabbage. And although Sam was a taker, this gorgeous veg wasn’t received well across the board. But even if I have one victory, it’s a major victory…
ME: Who knows what this is?
IN UNISON: Green Cabbage.
SAM: It looks like cheese inside…
ME: Green Cabbage. That’s right. OK. Do you think it’s going to taste the same or different as red cabbage?
SAM: The same.
ME: Yeah? OK. Let me give you each a piece. You think you’re going to like it? Because you guys love red cabbage right?
ME: You love Red Cabbage right?
ME: OK, maybe loved is the operative word.
EMMA: I want one of that cabbage.
ME: So, do you want a crunchy piece from the inside or a softer, greener piece?
LAUREN: I want a crunchy piece.
ME: And then you can compare it to the softer piece on the outside.
SAM: UMM…I’ll try it.7 comments
