Yesterday I gave Caleb Cheerios, a cereal which, remarkably, he’s never had before. I set it down in front of him and said cheerfully, “Look, Caleb! I got you a new kind of cereal! It’s yummy!”
He took one suspicious look at it, turned up his nose, and said, “No! No new cereal! Wanna graham cracker.” Well, he didn’t get the cracker, but neither did he touch the Cheerios. It was a stalemate.
This morning, I poured him another bowl of Cheerios and set them down in front of him. I said, “Here, Caleb. Have some baby donuts!”
He’s in there eating them now.
