How is cat food more tasty

than the food I feed Nolan? Okay seriously, I buy the BEST baby grub for that kid and he eats cat food. Today, I ran outside to put something else is the recycle bin for pick up and apparently that was enough time for Mr. Nolan to race into where the cat food is, chow down, and get back to playing like nothing happened. I discovered it when I started playing with him and smelled cat food on his breath (or his breath smells exactly like my cats!). I did a sweep of his mouth and sure enough - cat food. I suppose some would say that is lack of supervision, but holy cow! My driveway is only 17.5 feet long and I move pretty fast for a cancer girl. Anyhoo, I am doing pretty well even though my parenting skills need to be sharpened. While I am not passing gas to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas, I am not crying, gnashing my teeth, or wincing, when I poop - THAT IS PROGRESS! Tomorrow is a big day - Mason's first dental appointment and his second swimming lesson. Last week's lesson went horribly and when I asked Mason about what happened (because I could not be there due to treatment) he said, "Mommy, I can't swim!" I explained that that is why he was there - they would teach him how. I just looked up at my innocently and said, "O-o-o-o-h-h-h-h." Hopefully we do better tomorrow. Looking for a new cat food location......Love, Ang

Hmm, thanks Ang you've given me something to laugh about today. I swear, I was lauging my head off and it's a good thing that I didn't wake my sister. I hope that you're cat food is less gross looking then my cats. Hope that swimming goes well.

well that is just too funny. I burst out laughing when I read this.

And this is the dry stuff I assume and he didn't spit it out. If you want I can make up a story about how Grant did that as a child, even though we did not have a cat. Oh ya, now I remember, he was 12 years old and over at a friends home and...

I prefer lamb and rice myself. What flavor is Nolan snacking on, Angie? Maybe he needs a bone to gnaw on or something. Children...they take you to places you never thought you'd go, don't they. I'm so laughing!
