adventures in motherhood

Today Ginger was walking around chewing something.
Something I didnt give her.
I thought it was her rubberband for her hair.
Dont ask me why I thought that.
So I held out my hand.
Spit it out, I say.
To which she obliges.
And in my hand is a regurgitated goldfish cracker.
Oh, that's okay, I tell her.
Then she picks up the A.B.C. goldfish out of my hand
and puts in back in her mouth.
I love toddlers.

I've caught Michael eating pieces of food out the garbage a few times. Can you imagine how many times I haven't? Or he will refuse to eat anything out of his snack cup but will pick up random Cheerio's off the floor and put them in his mouth.

I love these moments of motherhood. I have pointed out food on the floor to Anthony, I stuck my hand out for a chewed fruit snack when the sacrament bread came today, he thinks the dog's water dish and his water cup are interchangable... I mean, hey, it's helping their immune system, right?!? Any names yet for the boy? If you have any discarded names, PLEASE throw them my way. Tony and I can't seem to agree on ANYTHING!
