Two weeks ago I tried a bowl of rice crispies with Evy. Now. I tried cereal with Ethan several times as a young child and he didn’t get it. Didn’t get the spoon or the taste or the concept — it just DID NOT work (yet somehow he was able to make his own oatmeal by age one. Puzzler). And now, 3 years later, Ethan still doesn’t eat a bowl of cereal (he prefers more complex homemade breakfasts, but that’s another story). But EVY. Totally different. She ADORES cereal. Especially rice crispies. She eats it completely independently. And even carefully hands back the bowl to me when she’s done. It’ll keep her occupied for a good 15 minutes. Fabulous.
