Max loves Smartees! He uses smartees or fruit snacks to do his math homework every week. So when Joe spotted some giant smartees at the store not too long ago we had to get a couple of them. I knew Max would either love them or not even touch them because they are different. He is very picky! Here is a picture to compare a normal smartee with the super big smartee....

Yeah, the pic is not the best but you get the idea!
I showed them to him and his face lite up and he said "wow!" It was looking good. I opened them up and then he would not even touch them. Drives me crazy. They taste the same but he never figured that out since he would not even try it. That same day I had bought some Smartee valentines candy. They were medium in size and had conversation words on them (like conversation hearts). At that point I figured he wasn't going to eat them either. He still got them for V-day though. To my surprise he ate them!

The gaint smartees were huge and I had never seem them before. Oh well, everyone else got to eat them!

WOW! My Oldest Elizabeth loves the giant Smartees! They are really hard to find, I've only seen them 2places...ever! I'm sad Max wouldn't try them, he missed out :(
Jonathan is the same way, somethings just send him on overload...drives me crazy too, but i seem to be getting use to it :)

Isn't it funny how kids pick and choose what they want, even if it's something they already like? Drives me crazy when it's my kids, but I find it rather amusing when it's someone else's. Go figure.
