What’s she got against pumpkins?

“Pumpkin’s not a veggie!”

That’s what my daughter keeps saying before she throws the plastic pumpkin across the room. See, we were at Target, and she found some cheap, plastic veggies in the dollar bin, and wanted them. We bought them. It is a strange collection of veggies: a green pepper, a jalepeno pepper, and red chile pepper, lettuce, eggplant, celery, broccoli, what I believe is bok choy, and a pumpkin.

I’m not sure why she insists the pumpkin is not a veggie. Heck, now I am not even sure it is really a vegetable…

  1. Officially, it’s a member of the cucurbita family – a squash.
    Don’t you just love the internet?

    [Kaz: So, wait. Now you’ve got me even more confused. Squashes aren’t vegetables?]

  2. L.A. Daddy says:

    Ha! That’s great. Our little one really loves her veggies, too. It’s so nice when they’re young and they haven’t really discovered the joys of pizza, ice cream, and everything else that will kill you.

    At our Thanksgiving dinner, L.A. Toddler only wanted a 2nd helping of her green beans… If only I could follow in her footsteps.
