My son, the food snob???

What the heck happened??? Mr.B, our little chef and food connoisseur, has become a food snob? It started with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. You'd think those little buggers are harmless, but not in this house hold. For about 2 months now, I've heard the same request, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. "Mommy I want PB&J". Now, I usually allow Mr.B to have PB&J at least once a day. Either breakfast or lunch. But it has gotten to the point where he will take a few bites of dinner, put his fork down and tell us he does not like dinner and wants his beloved PB&J. I know I like to cook new recipes, but I make sure that they include foods I know Mr.B will eat. So his not liking dinner, is not a probability. I told myself I'd never force my children to eat something they didn't like ( flash back to me having to eat ground beef, gagging the whole time, when I was younger), but this is ridiculous. I know my child likes the food we eat, otherwise I wouldn't make it. This kid use to request tuna sandwiches for lunch, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, for dinner. But now that bloody PB&J monster has taken over his very soul and has corrupted his taste buds. What will I do........
