IF - modify

When Emma decided her new favorite color was green, she modified her diet and would only eat food that was green. This, of course, delighted her mother, who happily fed her green veggies all day long.

Based on a semi-true story - when my daughter was about 4, she went through a mini stage of only eating food that was yellow. I was glad it only lasted a few days, because she didn't like most of the yellow foods I tried to give her!

Working on trying to get my working mojo back - this helped. Thank you, Illustration Friday!

Hi Nina, Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog. Love your little green story and your illustration.

I went to your website and saw more of your designs and like your style. I'll be coming back for more. :)
