I am a cannibal

2 year old Corinne sits on the kitchen table, carefully holding her fingers spread apart as her Mommy explained, so that her freshly painted sweetheart pink nails don't touch each other. I sit at her feet, putting the teensiest drops of polish on her itty bitty toenails. She shakes her head slowly and wistfully sighs...

"You can't eat nail polish, Mommy..."

Too true, my dear. It's one of those big disappointments in life. As pretty as nail polish is and as much as you'd LIKE to lick it off your nails, you just can't. It's almost as unfair as my huge desire to simply devour my children.

They're so beautifully delicious, how could I NOT?

Oh man, those kids are getting big. And Justin looks just like you.

Frame that picture and hang it on the wall!!!

When I was little, I had the biggest urge to eat crayons. Whenever I open a new box, I still get that urge . . .

Jamie said...

Avery always talks about the things we can't eat like that, must be fascinating to those little minds!

Beautiful family you have, my dear.

so, um, when my oldest was a toddler, he kept biting me... I was puzzled, until my husband pointed out that I had been (ahem) chewing on him since he was a baby. Yup. I've totally chewed on arms and legs- each of the kids. I CANNOT RESIST CHEWING ON A BABY! Don't laugh until you try it...

Thanks guys. It was a completely random shot. They were all laughing and playing in the hallway and I grabbed my camera. I actually can't stand that there is a plastic shopping bag in the background (Patrick's doing. Not MINE. I am CLOTH girl.)

Especially when they say such cute things!

Tiffanie said...

They are definitely cute! Be sure to get lots of pictures (is what Kelly would say.)

Kristi said...

Great shot! I can never get a good shot of Isabella. Whenever I ask her to smile for the camera, she runs away.

Hannah said...

That is a fabulous shot! All 3 kids looking at the camera, all smiling. Perfect!!

P.S. I'm a wannabe cannibal, too :-) Must have passed it onto Ethan because he says, "I love you so much I want to eat you". I hope he learns a new line before he starts dating ...

Tracey said...

Oh Hannah! That is just wrong!! :)

Yummy! They really are darn cute. It automatically makes siblings ten times cuter when they look like they like each other.

Mojavi said...

Tonya said...

Oh Tracey that is a great picture of the three of them! I love painting nails with the girls :)

Kami said...

They are so delicious!

I have the same problem with my kids too...they don't like it so much when I try to eat them though :-)
