Gabi HATES bananas. And my mother-in-law keeps trying to get her to eat them. Apparently they will make her grow strong, or something like that. I wasn´t able to understand the complete explanation she gave for why it´s so gosh darn important for Gabi to eat bananas. But it was very animated, so bananas must be close to her heart.
Gabi just came into the bathroom while I was blowdrying my hair to tell me something very important.
Gabi: Mommy! I have something VERY important to tell you!
Me: What is it?
Gabi: You don´t spit out the things that you DO like. You only spit out the things that you don´t like!
Me: Did you eat something you liked?
Gabi: No, it was something I DIDN´T like!
Me: Is your grandma trying to feed you bananas again?
Gabi, with a big sigh: Yes. I don´t LIKE bananas, even when they are in chocolate. I just don´t like them!
Me: Don´t worry, sweetheart. Just keep saying Nao Obrigada when she offers them. You don´t have to eat them.
Gabi: Thanks, mommy. I DO like bananas when they´re watermelon, though. I LOVE watermelon!
And off she skipped to go get some watermelon.
