Broccoli is one of my favorite veggies. It just gets too expensive sometimes. Today, I got two broccolis for P56[$1.19]..Yay!
One of my favorite activities in the morning is going to the market with Ykaie. [We live near the market, just a 3-minute bike ride]Since Ykaie turned two its has become almost an everyday thing. She loves going out and she loves going to the market. She loves seeing the different things being sold in the market. She points out the different kinds of fruits and veggies. This morning, she won’t let us leave the market without buying mangoes, one of her favorite fruits.We also checked out some remote controlled toy car, she wants a toy car because she saw our neighbor’s son playing with one. Her daddy promised to buy her one this week. Isn’t daddy sweet?♥
Going to the market with Ykaie kind of slows down buying and walking but it sure makes it fun. It becomes a learning experience for her too.
Righ now, I’m teaching her to eat vegetables because she only has a few that she likes. Broccoli is NOT one of them.
