we have this thing about sugar...

phoebe is our third child. and for all three children we wait until their 1st birthday for them to have sugar*. yup, no cookies, cake, whipped cream, ice cream, popsicles, lollipops, brownies, soda pop, chocolate milk, maraschino cherries, milk shakes,... NADA, not even juice people. JUICE!

i'm thinking we get away with it so well we should keep it up until their, oh, i don't know, 28th birthday or something? i mean, they do have 50% of their genes from me.
but it sure was cute watching phoebe eat her first ice cream on her birfday. cute. cute. cute.

* our theory behind the "no sugar" policy? it has produced some pretty excellent, non-picky eaters. for example: abby would NOT leave the grocery store last week until we had spinach in the cart.

I thought I was the only one with a no sugar till 1 policy. I'm happy to hear that I'm not alone! Our kids aren't picky either, so maybe there is something to it!?!
