I have always been a good eater. Since the day I started eating solid foods, I was hooked on the experience of eating. Lately I had a bit of a revelation. I have always known that I prefer some foods to others, but only recently it occurred to me that life would be better if I only ate my favourite foods. Why doesn’t everyone do that?
Mommy insists that I need to eat an assortment of different foods. I eat a little bit of yogurt at breakfast, just to make mommy happy. Maybe I’ll taste my grilled cheese sandwich to prove that I’m trying. At dinner I nibble on some vegetables and pick at my meat just so that I can say I’m making an effort.
When I grow up I want to be a fruitavore. All I really want to eat is fruit. Maybe I’ll throw in some oatmeal or Cheerios from time to time just for variety. Perhaps I might taste the occasional cookie or baby biscuit. Other than that, it’s just going to be fruit.
My favourite fruits are bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and pears. I also really like kiwi, peaches, apricots, and apples. There are many other fruits that I will eat too, but not raspberries. They’re pretty disgusting. I never liked them.
When I’m big enough to decide on my own menu, I’ll address the drink selection too. There will be no more water or juice, only milk for me. My plate will be loaded up with fruit and I’ll have a big bottle of milk to wash it down. That sounds yummy.
When I’m bigger I’ll be able to make my own food and then nobody will tell me what to eat. I’ll simply make whatever I want. I just have to be big enough to reach the plates and I’ll need to learn how to work the refrigerator. It doesn’t look that hard but I’m too small for the time being.
Mommy says I need to eat my meals to grow big. The irony is not lost on me. I have to eat all this different food so that I can stop eating all this different food. Confusing, isn’t it? I have been growing at a steady pace, so it seems that Mommy’s strategy works.
I can’t wait until I’m big enough to be in charge of my own meals. I’ll have apricot with strawberry for breakfast and pear with kiwi for lunch. My dinner will be a big plate of peach, apple, and kiwi, with a good helping of banana for desert. It’s going to be delicious. I’ll be the best fruitavore ever!
