Milo takes after his mama in more ways than just this, but he is ALWAYS hungry, especially right when he wakes up from his nap!
I get a kick out of the small “Mama….Mama…Nana (food)” that comes calling from his room, announcing the end of his snooze. I walk in and he smiles, then calls, “Up peese!” I lift him gently out of the crib and he takes my hand and runs me down the hall into the kitchen where he points animatedly at one food or another yelling “I wan dis! I wan dis!”
This day it happened to be the fridge, and when opened, the hummus. Weird that my 22 month old loves hummus? I dunno, but he does. I put it in a little bowl, and he points emphatically at the aprons. We have a smaller one from China that has evolved into being his, and he adores it. “I wan dis!” And the apron goes on. Then he takes my hand and runs me to the pantry. When I open the door he promptly removes the bag of pita chips and sets it on the table next to his hummus. How appropriate. The perfect afternoon snack!
