The big mistake…

So, I bought Noah a box of animal crackers. We had fun identifying each animal and playing with it before he ate it. Boy, was that a mistake. Now every bit of food  is an animal. Grilled cheese and soup becomes a dinosaur tromping through a swamp. You get the idea. So I’ve had to be pretty strict about not playing with our food at all, to avoid being humiliated and possibly even barred from restaurants.

Tonight I hear him him tell his pieces of fish "Let’s have a parade!" I immediately jump into action: We don’t play with our food, it’s not a toy.

Then I hear a very, very tiny voice tell the fish in a very sad way "No parade. We are not having a parade today *sigh*". 

It’s not easy to be two.
