Breakfast of champions

Baby Plum starts his days the same way, almost every day.

He enjoys a banana. Bananas are his absolute favorite food. He's tall enough to steal them out of the fruit basket now and will chew them through the peel if I don't get there in time.
And if we happen to run out of bananas? It's a really, really bad thing. His screams are awful, and it's hard to find something to pacify him.

If someone happens to start eating a banana around him, that person is expected to share. If he sees a banana on the counter at someone else's house, he will have it.

I got us some bananas at the grocery store this weekend. They were the first thing I put in the basket, and I had to keep his chubby little fingers out of the bag for the entire trip. He was rewarded for his patience as soon as we got to the car.

I had a Mr. Banana superhero when I was little. It was a stuffed banana with a string. I wonder if he would like that?

We like bananas around here, too. But maybe we don't like them quite enough, because I am SO TIRED of cleaning dried banana mush off the floor, the chair, the table... you get the picture.

Must be the start of the day. Plums hair is still looking combed with nothing smeared in it, his clothing and tray are still clean. Won't last for long. Bravo for trying though.

This summer a delicious treat that my kids love, that you could try ,is to puree in food processor 2 bananas and a spoonful of peanut butter if desired and it tastes like rich ice cream.
