Anyway, since Christmas I've been eating almost solely raw foods. Yup, raw fruits, veggies, raw nuts, soaked grains, and some dehydrated stuff that has scored particularly low amongst my housemates (ya...the infamous kale).
So, this all rose to a bit of a head with my little guy tonight. I made the grave error of using his school water bottle last night to have one of my green smoothies in. Now, I must say that I washed this bottle in our sterilizing dishwasher, so I assumed all was cool. But....
Little guy: "Mom, I couldn't drink my water today. There was green stuff floating all at the top."
Me: "Oh, no! I'm sorry! Did you pour it out and refill it?"
Little guy: "No way. I didn't trust the bottle after that."
He sat down at the table beside me and watched me pour a bowl of chia, buckwheat, and hemp cereal.
Little guy: "Can I try it?"
Me: "Sure!" Yes, I was getting way more excited than was warranted, but this kid is reluctant to try much of anything these days.
He pinched just a bit and put it in his mouth.
Little guy: "It's bird food, mom."
Me: "You're supposed to let it soak for five minutes before you eat it."
Little guy: "You know what your diet is? It's green baby diarrhea and bird food. You're disgusting, mom."
And then he farted.
Me: "That little bit of bird food did not cause that!"
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
