Last week I gave my 2-year old a bowl of cubed watermelon and she turned her nose up at it. I mean, come on, it’s pink, it’s juicy, it’s sweet!
So yesterday I got out my melon-ball gadget and scooped away. She loved that her melon was “balls” and must’ve shoved about 20 of them in her mouth, in about 2 minutes, the juice dribbling down her chin.
If I knew that’s all it would take, I would’ve gotten out my $5 scoop months ago. Now that I think about it, I wonder how broccoli ‘balls’ would turn out?!
