.....before you have kids, is just how FUNNY they are. No one can ever get across the number of moments you will laugh out loud (or to yourself, if it would upset your kiddo) just being around them.
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish are a favorite snack around our house (as popular with the teen as with the McKid). The GoldFish Colors are running some tie-in with the Nickleodeon Kids' Choice Awards, whatever they are. So, instead of getting just colored goldfish in your package--and wouldn't that, really, be ENOUGH?--you now get colored "splat" crackers.
Yesterday afternoon, I walked into my office to see McKid with a giant pile of crackers spread over the top of my desk. She was oh so carefully separating out fish from "splats". I asked her, "What on EARTH are you doing?"
"Getting out all the crabs." (She doesn't get the whole "splat" idea. I'm not sure I do, either.)
"'Cause I only like the crabs. I don't like fish crackers."
Of course, I try logic (stupid me!): "Honey, they're all made out of the same stuff, they just LOOK different. They're just different SHAPES."
"NO, NO, NO, NO! I ONLY EAT CRABS! NO FISH!"
Well, alrighty then.....
Thanks a LOT Pepperidge Farm. Thanks a LOT.
