The All Knowing Nose

Princess has an amazing since of smell.
She is a very picky eater and because I want to avoid the comments of "Ewww, I don't like that, do I have to eat that, I'm not hungry, etc, etc". She is not allowed to ask whats for dinner. If she does ask I tell her something ridiculous like squid, octopus, alligator, etc, etc.

So, she never knows what is for dinner until she sees it on her plate. 95% of the time, she smells it and guesses correctly before she sees what it is, usually before she even gets in the dinging room. I don't know how she does it. Either she does have a really good since of smell or she is psychic.
On the rare occasion she is wrong, her guess has similar ingredients (similar smell).

Every time she does it Hubby and I look at each other in awe, its just too funny.
I made banana bread the other day (Princess didn't know I was making it) and when Hubby got home I asked him if he could smell something good? And before he had a chance to answer Princess said "Mmmm Banana Bread!"



  1. i hate it when my boys do that, then i have to do the "when i was a kid..." litany just to let them eat their dinner!
    btw, I did grabbed your button and it's now in my blog called Smart Mommy Blog

  2. oh wow that is crazy. Perhaps she will be a really good cook...once she learns to eat a larger variety.
