Freak of Nature

Last night, Baby sat down to a very healthy dinner of hot dogs, macaroni and cheese and corn. Relax, opponents of nitrates and artificially-flavored food products, this story has a happy ending.

As we started eating, Baby started screeching. Nothing unusual about that. He was pointing vehemently at the table and saying, “DIS,” which is baby-speak for “this.” Unfortunately, Baby doesn’t realize that “this” could mean just about anything on the planet, but the pointing helps us to narrow it down.

Luckily for me, Daddy was sitting closest to Baby at the dinner table, so this conversation was his responsibility by default.

Baby: “Dis!” (pointing vehemently towards the kitchen table)

Daddy: “Do you want more hot dog?”

Baby: shakes head no.

Baby: “Dis!” (pointing vehemently towards the kitchen table)

Daddy: “Do you want more macaroni and cheese?”

Baby: shakes head no.

Baby: “Dis!” (pointing vehemently towards the kitchen table)

Daddy: “Do you want more corn?”

Baby: shakes head no.

Baby: “Dis!” (pointing vehemently towards the kitchen table)

Daddy: “Do you want more milk?”

Baby: shakes head no.

Baby: “Dis!” (pointing vehemently towards the kitchen table)

Daddy: “Do you want something on Daddy’s plate?”

Baby: nods head “YES, YES, YES.”

Daddy: “Do you want asparagus?”

Baby: nods head “YES, YES, YES.”


Baby completely abandoned his hot dog, macaroni and cheese and corn for asparagus.

Freak.

Unfortunately for me, he didn’t bother to chew the asparagus spears, so we’ll be having some very interesting diaper adventures today.

I'm sure the wet diaper won't be pleasant either. Can't wait to hear how things "turn out!"
