But You Won't Eat a Green Pepper?

My kids. Don't get them. The whole 'eat your vegetables' thing is kinda rough at our house. Okay, Bitty's pretty good, but Stomper? The person who can get his daily quota of veggies in that boy is a better parent than I. I can barely get the kid to choke down a smoothie. But you know what my kids are crazy about? Just absolutely wild for? Seaweed. Yes, seaweed. Roasted and salted sheets of seaweed. When my parents came to pick me up from my mission in Korea we had seaweed several times. My dad said, "Mmmmmm. It's like eating ...crunchy, ...salty paper." My mom said, "Ewwww. It's like eating ...crunchy, ...salty paper." Funny. I guess my kids are more on the "crunchy, salty paper is yummy" side of things. Even Bundle's in on it. I'm sure it's not the best way to fill a kid with dark green vegetables, but it's better than a McNugget, right?

I am not kidding when I say that I think it has been about 2 years since Tommy has had a vegetable, except for spaghetti sauce. He absolutely refuses and vomits if I stuff it in his unwilling mouth.
