When we drove by the park several weeks ago and I explained that springtime was almost here, he asked, "Food trucks?" Yes, my little gourmand, springtime signals the return of the farmer's market and therefore food trucks. So, imagine his delight when the mall had a mechanical motorcycle, race car and food truck! My kid was in heaven.
We have a ways to go to get this kid on board with proper restaurant etiquette and exploring past the finger foods. But I know that I am doing at least one thing right, imposing my interests on my child.
