Ever since Caleb was born, he has resisted eating vegetables. Last week, James found the answer. The boys are head over heels for Star Wars right now. So while we sat coaxing Caleb to eat his greens, James spontaneously said, in that squeaky voice of Yoda:

"Mmm, Master Caleb. Eat vegetables you must. That is how you can achieve a level 10 Jedi."
"Do you eat vegetables, Yoda?" Caleb inquired.
"Of course! Why else do you think I am so green?"

Caleb processed the thought for about a quarter of a second, and then smiled and scarfed down the entire plate. Since then, he always eats the vegetables I give him, often eats them first, and has even been known to ask for vegetables!

Had I but known it was that easy!
