I found this today. I have seen it before, but something about having a toddler, it struck my funny bone today! Oh how I love my toddler. Today...he pulled a bowl of cereal off the counter, left there by a NON toddler. Sometimes I catch it on film, but today's mess was too big, and I was NOT in the mood. But I did find a few of my favorite messes, that were perfect for illustrations!
Hope you like it too. Oh, I didn't write it. Although I could have!
Over the years you may have noticed, as I have, that most
two-year-olds are trim. It came to me one day over a cup of black
coffee and a carrot that perhaps their diet is the reason. After
consultation with pediatricians, X-ray technicians, and distraught
moms, I was able to formulate this new diet. It is inexpensive,
offering great variety and sufficient quantity. Before embarking on
this diet, however, be sure to check with your doctor... otherwise you
might have to see him afterward. Good luck!
