Blog Post, Interrupted: A Breakfast Tale

I fired up Blogger Dashboard this morning feeling al kinds of post-y (postal? no... that's wrong), but then life happened.

Felix wanted yogurt for breakfast. Okay. He only likes lemon and vanilla yogurt, so I ask him which one.

"What kind of yogurt, sweet pea?"

"Reg-ler kind,"

"Which flavor is regular?" I ask. I am foolish sometimes, despite this not being my first time at the toddler rodeo.

"Reg-LER!" he bellows at me, as if I am am inbecile.

I choose the vanilla cup. I show it to him.

"No-OHHHHH-oooooo-OOOOOH!" he wails, tearing up and grimacing like a Carnivale mask.

"Ohhhhkay, then. Lemon," I offer tentatively.

"Lemon," he says with a sunshiney smile. He climbs into his booster seat, grabs the proffered spoon and digs in. Between bites, he says, "Can I have my bite-min?"

I pause at the cabinet, hand on the Berkley & Jensen gummy-vitamin bottle.

"Please, Mama?" he asks, still shoveling Stonyfield's lemon into his face.

I give him the vitamin, grab a yogurt to have with him, and sit down.

"Can I have a waffle wif my wohgurt?"

What blog post?

Oh, wohgurt is so cute. My son isn't even old enough to say anything yet and you've made me want another one.

Admittedly, that's not hard to do.
