Love/Hate Relationship with an Orange October 8, 2005

Posted by Zara's Mama in Zara.

Zara has always been attracted to oranges. Since I’d read that citrus fruits should not be given to babies below 1yr old as it may cause allergy, I’d never given her oranges before, only the whole unpeel orange for her to play with. And every time when she wanted to put the orange in the mouth, I would stop it, worried about the pesticide and all. Of course, to her, the temptation to bite the fruit is greater if the fruit is forbidden.

Today, I thought I’d do her a favour, I cleaned an orange with those plant based vegetable detergent, and passed it to her. She happily took it, and started putting it in her mouth, biting on it (she probably thought how come I didn’t stop her from biting this time). The oil from the orange peel must have tasted bitter, she cringed, then whined, even shed some tears, yet, she continued to put it in her mouth for another bite, and another bite. It was real funny to see her doing this, bite, cry, bite, cry. Wicked, I know.

Here’s a video clip of her with the orange, she probably can’t decide if she should give up or take another bite. A love / hate tug of war.

Zara is so cute! Don’t know why this little babies like to explore new things and new taste even though the taste are bitter and sour to them!

There was once my babysitter give YChing a “lime” (kat jai), she removed the skin and eat it and showed funny and sour facial expression just like Zara!
