Today Blue-Eyed Boy told me he was hungry. So, I (being the wonderful Mother that I am) got him some food to eat. Cantaloupe specifically–he loves melons. He calls cantaloupe “camo” (yes, like camouflage, almost like he is saying camel) .
He began eating this lovely fruit and this is what I hear (I had walked into the bedroom for a moment).
“mmm…that’s good camo” (bite) “mmm….I eat camo” (bite) “mmm….I love my mom” (bite) “mmm….my mom give me camo” (this was all accompianied by the slurpy chompy noises that toddlers make when they eat melon).
There you have it folks–the way to a mans (or toddler boys’) heart is through his stomach.
I rest my case.
