I hate Veggies but I am a Mom.

This is one of my biggest dilemmas as a mom.  I was a very picky eater (ask my mom and dad) and it has stayed with me all my life.  Its not necessary the taste its the texture.  Slimy spinach...ewwww gross!  I know your laughing but I deal with this everyday!  I am not the best cook either so to try to cook with veggies has always been a struggle.  I eat salads....always love raw veggies more than cooked.  Being a mom who doesn't like veggies is probably a kids dream but its not my DREAM.  With that said I have never said to my kids "don't eat that...ewww gross" but I haven't out right told them "eat your veggies" either.  We eat veggies every night but its either corn, green beans, peas (but I don't have them on my plate) or a salad.  When my hubby cooks he throws in veggies and I wish I could cook like him but I would have to try the food and I'm not going to eat that slimy stuff!  When will I grow up LOL! 

My kids are big salad eaters so I'm not totally being a bad mom!

I have an uncle who has always been picky. He's never met a vegetable that he likes. His two daughters grew up loving vegetables. Not liking vegetables does not make you a bad mom. As a matter of fact, I doubt very seriously that you could be a bad mom if you tried!
