This morning, I offered Elnora the following for breakfast...

Fresh pineapple
Life Cereal
Organic O's

She said no to all of them.

She just walked in the room chewing something.

What was it?

Dog food.

Yeah...that makes sense.

(At least it's organic dog food and not "Ole Roy" or something like that.)

    I maybe shouldn't relate this, but I found out something interesting about pet food a while back.

    We used to frequently test out certain features in our online yellow pages by searching within category sets with few listings. One of these business categories was "animal carcass removal services". One day, I got curious to see if any of the few businesses listed therein were cross-listed with other types of businesses, and guess what -- they were!

    Yep, you've figured it out by now -- "animal carcass removal" businesses are cross-listed as "pet food manufacturers".

    So, the unfortunate implication is that your daughter could've been munching a bit on roadkill.

    Unless it was Vegan dogfood. I once went out a few times with a vegan woman, and she was sooo vegan that she'd also put her dogs on a veggie-only diet!

    LOL, and now you know why our dog eats organic dog food. Once I learned about what often ends up in convention dog food there was no way I was buying it. We have do drive 30 minutes to get the stuff, but it's safe for humans to eat (thank goodness.) :)

    LOL - it's the breakfast of champions. ;)

    I'm rather new to your blog. Came across it the other day after all of the craziness w/ the pork board. Anyway, was glad to find another lactivist mama out there, and added you to my blogroll. :)

    I love that you used your January sales for the milk bank. I have a Cafepress store too and am thinking of doing something similar now. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

    I recently fished several pieces of dog food out of my 10 month old's mouth after Grammy and her dog were here for a visit. :( At least she gives her dog organic food too!

    Here's what you do for a two year old. You don't ask "do you want some grapes." Because she wants to have a choice and really, really wants to say no.

    Instead,you put some grapes in a bowl and put them on the table and don't say anything. Follow that with a piece of toast. Make something for yourself. Then, she gets to choose to eat the grapes, which maybe she will and maybe she won't.

    I have teenagers who don't like one suggestion I make when it comes to a snack, but are thrilled to be (silently) handed a bowl of grapes.
