so ben cooked up some 6-grain cereal on saturday for us to enjoy. (yes, kristen, i am sure this reminds you of the lovely smell when i would cook my wheat cereal in the dorms.) so yesterday i am enjoying it until i got about 3/4 of the way done and notice a bug in my cereal. i start searching around and find another one - needless to say, i am pretty grossed out by it. we couldn't find any in ben's cereal, the uncooked stuff, nor the rest of the cooked stuff. i didn't eat any more of my bowl.
then obviously i had forgotten about that episode this morning because i heated up some more of that cereal. and this time i got about 2/3 of the way through eating it and, yes, i see another bug. i searched around and found another one. yuuucghk. sheesh, what a way to start out my monday.
on to the next thing.
so jonas' favorite phrase of the past couple weeks have been "don't like it." that's fine - he's almost 2. but what happened today at lunch happens just about every meal/snack time. so i set down lunch (omelet strips with ketchup to dip in) and of course jonas declares, "don't like it." then he proceeds to eat all of his strips with no complaints. then miles is "full" and gives jonas his last strip. jonas again declares "don't like it." but he ate it up.
question of the day:
miles (out of the blue) - "Mom, what is flowergasket?"
me - "flowerbasket??"
miles - "no, flowergasted."
me - "Uh!? Oh, where did you hear that!?"
miles - "the elves book."
me - "Oh. It means really, really, really surprised."
needless to say, i was flabbergasted.
