Pearls Before Swine

Yesterday we were in the backyard and I picked some grapes for Kathleen. She loves grapes, or perhaps it is better to say that she loved grapes the day before yesterday. One after another, she put a grape in her mouth, spit it out, and then put the next one in, only to spit it out before inserting the next victim. Perhaps she thought the next one might taste better.

After the grapes, she wandered over to my basket being filled with cherry tomatoes. When I came back to put some more in, I discovered four or five spit-covered tomatoes at her feet, with another entering her mouth, soon to join its fellows. With this food behavior, which is often echoed at the table, I was shocked to discover that she is in the 97th percentile for height. Kathleen certainly doesn't get that from me.

HAHAHAHA!!!! I wish I could have seen that! I would have laughed so hard. She's just experimenting. At least you didn't buy the food, right?

if it helps any, my older brother says tomatoes cause cancer... LOL! Xander is only in the 25th percentile for his height and he eats everything in his path... So it just goes to show that food isn't everything. :)

It's funny how yesterday's favorite food is today's chopped liver. They're such entertaining little people at this age :)
