Picky Eaters?

I never liked the term picky eater. One of my daughters has a huge range of foods and tastes she accepts and even loves. She can eat bitter chocolates, tea, cilantro, onions, spices, etc. The other? Not so much. But I’ve never called her a picky eater. To me, the term picky eater alludes toContinue reading “Picky Eaters?”

The Karen Hair Cut Part 2
