Kids Are So Funny!

Chad and I had to run errands in Portland earlier this week, so we decided we'd be brave and take the kids with us. Before heading for home, we stopped and ate dinner at On the Border. (Yummy!)

The kids meals came with a kid's sundae and Noah and McKaylie chose strawberry. (Vance had chocolate--even though he didn't have a kid's meal) About half way through his sundae, Noah told me that I could have it. When I asked him why, he said the strawberries tasted funny.

I thought that seemed strange because McKaylie was enjoying hers and it looked really good. I took a small bite to see. It was really good--fresh strawberries, very sweet--delicious. I couldn't understand what he was talking about. So, I asked him what was wrong with them. "They don't taste anything like my strawberry milk."

I couldn't believe it! Chad laughed and we both agreed . . . more fresh strawberries . . . less strawberry milk.

Myshel is always complaining about eating meat. She tells us that she's a vegetarian all the time. Which we find completely hilarious because she loves hamburgers, steak, chicken, etc. So it didn't come as any surprise when she announced to Chad and I yesterday that she was a vegetarian again. We reminded her that she loves hamburgers and chicken, so, technically she couldn't be a vegetarian.

Her answer, "Fine, I'm a pork-atarian because I hate pork chops and ham and all that stuff."

Chad (through a chuckle): "You do realize that you're eating a ham sandwich, right?"

She looked a little sheepish but avoided his question. Then Vance reminded her that she loves bacon, which she promptly countered that bacon doesn't count.

I smiled and said, "So, let me get this straight, you're a pork-atarian that eats ham and bacon."
Myshel, "Bacon doesn't count as pork."
Vance, "I think the pig would disagree."
