The Texture Of Things

An Evening Snack

January 20th, 2007

I come home from an errand. It is almost 9 p.m. I say my hellos, get a drink of water, and sneak back to the computer, leaving HG and tot in the living room. Soon, I hear the telltale sounds of the tot realizing I’m not in the room.

Tot: Blah, blah, blah – “Hey.”
(silence)
(thunder of small, running footsteps coming down the hall, toward the office)
Tot: “Hey. Mommy. No, no no no NO. Wait.”
(running out of the room, returning with two stuffed birds)
Tot: “This is, this is a Mlamingo. This is a crane. Come on! Come on, Mommy! Come to the living room with Daddy and eat Cadgews! Hurry!”
(running out of the room)

I can’t believe she likes cashews.

    I’m totally with you on the *ick* factor with cashews.

    We do differ, however, on the almond embargo. 🙂

    Mostly I like cashews when they’re cooked in something, like Thai food (though I’m not a huge Thai food fan). Straight from the can, though? I’ve got to be in the mood. As for the tot, I am surprised every time she eats anything that isn’t a vanilla wafer or a Spongebob Cheezit cracker.
