Scene: 9am. Sick and sniffly 2 year old is still in pajamas with all sorts of bed head happening. He has climbed into his high chair and is sitting at the table with a fork in his hand.

Tommy: It's dinner time mommy?
Me: No. It's 9am.
Tommy: I want dinner.
Me: Are you hungry?
Tommy: Yes. Hungry. Yes dinner. Yes fooooood. (excitement is rising)
Me: What do you want to eat?
Tommy: Uhhhh....uhhh......maca'oni! Annnnnnd.....uhh......uhhhhh....A'CADO! Annnnd.....uhhh....uhhh....a......snanwhich. And, a grapes. And uhhh....maca'oni more!
Me: You just ate 2 bowls of cereal and a kiwi. And you want macaroni, avacado, a sandwich and grapes?
Tommy: Yes. (with a decisive nod)
Me: OK.

And that's why we're having dinner at 9am. Heaven help us when he's a teenager and he eats us out of house and home.

In other food news.

Johnny B. (like a bat) prefers to take his meals upside down.


  1. "I just know I'm hungry. All the time!"

    This post is far too familiar for someone who is so far ahead on the child-raising road. (Taylor started baking a cake at 9:30 last night.)

  2. Wonder how tall he'll be tomorrow :D What a cutie.

  3. ummmmm....sick kids are the pits. You feel bad for them, you feel bad for you. Hope he gets better soon.

  4. Three things: 1)Tommy looks SOO big and grown up in that picture! 2)I love how you said "still" in pajamas at 9 am. I'm pretty sure there's something wrong at our house if we're NOT in pjs at 9...me included! :) 3)SO sorry I haven't picked a day yet. This week is turning kinda crazy BUT I did find out yesterday that I can use my TP pass to get into the Discovery museum so YAY for saving money! I could do this Thurs or Wed, Thurs, Fri next week so take your pick!

  5. I love your blog. It always makes me laugh! Tommy is a doll, and you are a nice mom for giving him what he wants.
