Words

I finally figured out how to tell my mom I'm hungry. For a long time I had to run over to the pantry or my high chair and beg. Mom would always say, "Use your words, Michael. Can you say 'hungry'?" Well, I just can't say "hungry" because it's a hard word, but now I've learned a word that works just as well.

I know that before we eat we always say a prayer, and I am really good at folding my arms and saying "May-men!" at the end. So now if I'm hungry I just fold my arms and say "May-men!" and mom gets me some food! It works great! Sometimes I still like to hang on my high chair and whine, and sometimes if I'm really hungry I yell at my mom (she says that's not very nice, but I say we'll talk about my being nice when I'm not so hungry). I can ask for some of my favorite kinds of food too, like crackers, milk, cheese, apples, yogurt and fruit snacks. I would eat fruit snacks all day if my mom would let me. She says I need to eat a "balanced diet", whatever that is. It sounds kind of yucky.

I love learning new words.

Isn't it great when the children train the parents to do what they want us to do?
