Apr 7, 2016: Banana Shortage

Only when you’ve got a toddler in the middle of his I only want to eat bananas-phase is it possible to walk into your local Target and find nary a single bananular fruit in all of their entire produce section…

Except for a small rack of super unripe, organic bananas that we soon found out were pretty much unedible on account of their green-ness … and also the fact that apparently bananas can actually be hard as a rock before they’ve ripened for normal consumption!

Thankfully, a secondary visit to a non-Target grocery store today reconciled our banana deficiency here at home, which is probably a good thing because I’m not exaggerating when I say that this kid literally ate three whole bananas throughout the course of today alone. 😯 It wasn’t 90 seconds after I’d handed over a peeled one that I looked again to see him happily smiling, not a banana in sight because I guess inhaling your fruit is what the hip toddlers do these days.

Hey, when I was his age I did the same thing just with Oreos, so I suppose I can’t really complain too much about his recent fondness for this prebiotic-rich treat! Lord knows he can sure use all of the prebiotics he can get lately, if you know what I mean… 😥
