Last night Spencer decided that she wanted to taste what was in the plastic lemon shaped container in the refridgerator- aka lemon juice concentrate. I told her no over and over again, that she wouldn't like it, but she wouldn't let the lemon juice issue go. Thinking that once she tasted the extremely sour concentrate she would hate it and spit it out, I thought this might be a good learning opportunity. So I said she could have a tablespoon of it but she couldn't spit it out.
I thought this was going to be the perfect lesson, but of course, I was wrong. Turns out, my child has an affinity for lemon juice concentrate and she kept asking me for more! I put some on the spoon and Spencer ate it like she would chocolate pudding - in one big gulp. She smacked her lips a few times and squinted her eyes in quiet contemplation before asking me for "more, please." I thought that maybe, somehow, there was some switcheroo at the lemon juice factory and lemonade was actually resisding in my bottle- so I tasted it. Yep, it was super sour lemon juice concentrate and Spencer liked it.
