We've been eating fresh fruits and vegetables in the mornings for the last several months.

This morning I gave Sawyer some orange slices, carrots and a romaine leaf.

He was walking around eating them while I was making our lunches and he said, "I'm eating blueberries!"

It took me a second to remember that we didn't have any blueberries, but we do have a rabbit cage in the dining room.

You're kidding, right?

Tim said...

Completely true.

He was in another room standing near Becky, and she said something like "that's nice." I was in the kitchen and thought "um, we don't have blueberries..."

I don't know if he ate any bunny poop, but he did put a few on the table next to his food.

We had a talk about how they'd make him sick. But the good news is, it's really harmless. The rabbits eat mostly hay, so their poop is basically compacted sawdust.

maybe when he grows up he'll like Civet coffee

Ewww, but then again we have so many poop stories that this is actually quite mild. One of my kids actually got some on a toy rubber bat (animal, not sports) and threw it up onto a cathedral ceiling. Where it stuck. Bat poop. Fun.

maybe a mother shouldn't do this to her own son, but... sam actually ate his own poop one time. his saggy diaper had fallen off and things had fallen out -- veggies which actually could be still identified, 'cause that's how his system works. so i think he identified which ones he still liked and tried to enjoy them again. don't even ask the real question, which is where on earth were his parents during all this? in our defense, that guy is one quick and mischievous feller.

(and i like sawyer's story better)

Great story--I can't wait until he's old enough to make some pancakes!
