You Want More? You Can’t Handle MORE!

What Hubs and I are dealing with right now is a Sweet Potato Addict.

As in, there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth and shouting and leg-kicking when the jar of sweet potatoes is empty.  And then there’s usually a head thrown backwards so that an enormous scream of UNHAPPINESS can be unleashed into the room, because WHY CAN’T I HAVE MORE SWEET POTATOES?!  I DON’T CARE IF MY GUT IS ABOUT TO BUST AND I’M IN JEOPARDY OF BARFING ORANGE GOO ALL OVER THE PLACE!  I CAN HANDLE MORE!

The thing is?  Well, parents really do know best, because Thing 2 thinks he can eat more than he really can.  Hubs and I know the exact point to cut Thing 2 off from the sweet potatoes, before the bright orange hurl from an overfilled belly takes place and Thing 2 blushes and sheepishly declares, “Well.  I guess I was wrong.  And I humbly apologize for this mess I just made.”

Because Hubs honestly cannot handle the hurl.  No way.  No how.  Such as.  Therefore.  And so forth.  If anything, Hubs aborts the sweet potato eating A LITTLE EARLY just TO MAKE SURE that there is no puking of the meal.

And y’all can go ahead and say it.

Even with his dinner smeared all over his face and a belly bulging with pureed tubers, Thing 2 is the very cutest baby boy around.

  1. I must say, I wish I could have gotten our son to eat those, so many years ago. Maybe he would like veggies today. Our granddaughter’s favorite, can’t get enough of them, food item is tomatoes. If she could eat tomatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, she would. Put tomatoes anywhere in her sights and all other food is invisible to her. And yes, Thing 2 is amazingly adorable even with the sweet potatoes on his face. 🙂
