with IZ

IZ’s favorite kind of food is shaping up to be pasta.   Especially short pasta, which he can handle better with a fork.  And tomato-based sauce, which I make nice and sweet for him, rather than cream or oil sauces.

That’s not as obvious or easy as it may sound, being in Korea, where kids are typically fed rice and soup, 3 times a day, especially when they’re younger, and all western foods tend to be lumped together as “junk food” – I guess in the same way that Chinese food in America, for example, generalized as cheap/greasy/MSG’d, probably wouldn’t be the first choice when feeding a toddler, even if available from a fancy place.  That Nanny 8 and MIL don’t interfere, and that he really digs it, both are major victories.  DJ, by contrast, has gone the other way, preferring Korean foods by a landslide.
