Last night I made peas with dinner. Travis doesn't like many vegetables, so he didn't put any on his plate. I know Aiden doesn't like peas, so I didn't give him very many. I never make him finish every last bite of food on his plate, but I do have a rule that he try everything. You never know when your tastes will change! So when Aiden asked if he could get some yogurt (his dessert), I told him he had to eat a bite of peas. He popped one in his mouth and swallowed it whole. He's learning how to swallow without chewing already. Cracks me up every time. Travis asked Aiden if he could have some, so he took a bite and chewed it.
Aiden said, "Ewwwww. Don't chew it. Just put it in your mouth and do this." He then mimed swallowing it whole.
Travis asked, "Why?"
"Because, if you bite it, this comes off," he pulls off the outer shell, "and then it goes pfth," and he makes a wet sound denoting the innards of a pea coming out.
We DIED. I love it when we get a little insight into the inner workings of Aiden.
