Carrots

Carrots are pretty harmless enough.

Most kids wouldn't even notice them and when they do probably just complain that they are on their dinner plate.

Our house used to be like that. Normal in our carrot usage.

But one day it all changed......

Trelise has discovered an affinity with the humble carrot and has taken to having them around her at all times.

Why am I complaining? Well she still won't eat them but instead carries them around.

For the past few days I've been on carrot patrol. My keen eyes have been on the lookout for little orange critters that can be hiding anywhere - the washing pile, her bed, various handbags anywhere but here
This is today's haul that I have retrieved (carrots don't look so good after Trelise has loved them!)
and then this
Just as I thought they had all been retrieved I came across this
I am thankful - tomato's would be far worse!

Tomatoes WOULD be far worse. What a funny fixation, though! Love it.

Ha! Tomatoes WOULD be worse. And UM? That's weird. Like ask the Dr. about it weird? And you know they will say, yeah, yeah, normal. They could carry around DAd's POOP and Dr. would say normal...
