Chocolate is the Best Bribery Tool

Kate actually ate green beans tonight. Not just one or two little ones. A whole (though small) serving. This has never ever happened before. She's put one in her mouth before and promptly spit it out. She's even asked for them before. But she'd never actually swallowed them before tonight. And said she liked them. Miracles abound.

Sure...I bribed her with the head of a chocolate bear. What good mother wouldn't? I gotta get her to try green foods some way. I'm not ashamed.

But knowing this child, I'm sure she won't touch green beans again for a year, even if I offer her the ENTIRE chocolate bear. She's funny like that.
