Food Talk

Occasionally when one of the kids is eating by themselves (usually when said child has slept in, or are eating a special treat), I'll over hear them personifying their food by saying things like:

"AUGH! I'm going to die!" Then into the mouth the cereal goes and the chomping (killing) begins. This line is usually from Bradley. Morbid, I know.

Or sometimes Emmy will say something like, "Buh-bye food, we'll see you later." Munch, munch, crunch. I can't help but think this is from reality shows like Man vs. Wild or Fear Factor where they actually eat live food.

This morning, as she spoke to her food, she took her spoon, laid it across her bowl and said, "Look, Mom, now they have a bridge to Terabithia." When I spotted these bowls, I thought of her and her food looking for its imminent death.

Are my kids crazy?

Do your kids talk to there food?

Better yet, do you?

I have distinct and clear childhood memories of my food coming to very tragic demises within my own oral cavity. And look how I turned out.

My kid's food seems to "ROOAAARRR" a lot. Then it says, "Don't eat me...Oh, no not my arm."

Hey, I am reading the Lovely Bones right now. Let me know how you like it.

yes, every time I eat a big piece of chocolate cake I say to it, "please let me just eat you and savor your rich, sweet, sinful taste ...and then go away. I don't want you to take up residence in my body, I already have enough 'fat' cells in residence. Just come on in the front door and make your way out the back, and make it quick!"

lol, but my food never listens to me!

I Want to Hear From You!
