Friday’s “What the frack….?” moment

I’m thinking of dubbing Friday’s as “What the Frack Fridays.” ***

These will (in theory) be nice and short posts revolving around a moment where I was either:

1) Befuddled beyond belief

2) Pissed off to the point of being postal

3) Alight with awe and amazement

4) Or mastering a Mommy Brain malfunction.

Today’s moment falls into the #1 category: What the frack is it with Lil Diva and the Cheerios?

During a meal, my 1 year old will often take a Cheerio here and there and purposefully drop it on the floor.

At first, I thought this was just part of the I Want to Drop Everything On The Floor Because Gravity Fascinates Me behavior.  Or perhaps an I Am Full, Why Are You Still Feeding Me action.

It appears this is not the case.

A bowl of Cheerios

Forget the bowl... the floor tastes WAY better.

For some reason, Cheerios taste better after sitting on the floor.

Perhaps there is a tiny little village of a race known as Ee-o’s whose sole purpose in life is to enhance the flavor of their name sake.  They are only visible if you are under the age of two and are the real reason Lil Diva likes the Old MacDonald chorus of “E-I-E-I-O.”

Why else would she – after tossing handfuls of them onto the floor in apparent disgust – immediately go into Gather and Eat mode the second she is released from her chair?

And she gets Very Angry when not allowed to do this in public.

Seriously, Diva… what the frack?

Battlestar Galactica's Last Supper

This series is one of my favorites. Yes, I'm a sci-fi geek.

**** The term “frack” brought to you by the newer Battlestar Galactica series.  If you like sci-fi and have never seen it: watch it.  And yes, like every other awesome series, it is no longer on the air.

One Response to Friday’s “What the frack….?” moment

  1. Love this because I am equally baffled as to why my little Sweet Pea’s Cheerios taste better when they’ve also been tossed on the floor. Your guess is as good as mine.

    PS: I like “what the frack fridays”!
