Is it really that different?
How is it possible that oatmeal at lunch really tastes different than oatmeal at breakfast? As I type, the four year old is sitting at the lunch table. She made a choice this morning that she did not want to eat her oatmeal. She really wanted all of the samples at the grocery store earlier this morning. She really does not like it when everyone else gets tasty snacks and treats without her. So she has the oatmeal bowl in front of her again for lunch. I did warm it up a bit. Did she eat it? Of course she did. She inhaled it. It didn't taste different. She just did not want to see that oatmeal again for dinner and she wanted what everyone else was eating. I feel certain that the oatmeal for breakfast next week will taste just fine.
