When he’s crawling on the floor, my son shows a reckless abandon for tasting new things. Dust bunnies? Yum! A stray clove of garlic? Why not!? A rotting leaf I’ve tracked in from outside? Bon appétit!
But even though he’ll put literally anything he finds on the floor into his mouth, he refuses to try new or — surprise, surprise — healthy foods. To bring some levity to the situation, and just plain save my sanity, I sought out the funniest tweets about picky eaters from hilarious parents on Twitter.
Seriously, these had me rolling on the floor. And, wow, there are a lot of discarded carrots down here. Please send help.
