Sweet Potatoes and the Three-Year-Old
The other night, I was helping son-in-law Adam with 3-year-old Harrison and 7-month-old Fisher. Adam put food on Harrison's plate for dinner. Harrison did a pretty good job with everything except the sweet potatoes.
Finally, Adam asked, "Harrison, why aren't you eating the sweet potatoes."
Harrison replied, "I don't like them."
So Adam asked, "Why? Is it the taste or the texture."
Harrison garbled out, "The tex-chur."
Adam smiled and said, "Harrison, do you even know what 'texture' means?"
He answered, "It means it's gross!"
