The other day when I watched Kaiya, Mylee, and Cole for the afternoon, I brought them to their home following dinner. This was the same night that he requested that I draw a horse for him. It was nearing bed time when he sat down next to me on the sofa.
“Nana,” he said. “I’m hungry.”
I wasn’t surprised to hear he was hungry because he hadn’t eaten a lot for dinner.
“What are you hungry for?” I asked him. I might be able to scrape together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or heat him up some mac and cheese in the microwave.
He was quiet for a few moments. Finally he spoke.
“Crab,” he said.
He was hungry for crab. Oh, wait just a moment while I run to the store and buy you some Dungeness Crab Legs.
I laughed out loud. And then he ran off to the kitchen. In a moment or two he returned. In one hand he had a package of cooked imitation crab sticks. With his other hand, he was munching on a crab stick.
How does this child come up with these notions? And he will always make me smile…..
Have a great weekend.
