We first suspected that Claire was a little weird when her Daddy had a bag of "Buffalo Ranch" flavored Doritos, and she kept crying, "Chip! Chip!!" This must have been 6 months ago, she was about 18 months old. Finally, after trying to explain that she wouldn't like them, we gave her one.
She ate it, then said, "Chip! Chip!!" again.
Yesterday we had chicken nuggets. BJ got out the buffalo sauce. "Dip! Dip!!" she cried. We said no. She got more insistent. I pointed out that since she likes - no, loves - the Buffalo chips, maybe she'd like the sauce.
Not only did she like it, she was dipping the chicken and then licking the sauce, straight, off of the nuggets.
I'm pretty sure that I have the only spicy food loving 2 year old in the world. Are we just the only ones brave (dumb?) enough to try feeding this stuff to our toddler? We've always been that way - MG teethed on pickles, when she was really small, maybe 6 months old.
What's the weirdest thing your kid loves to eat?
In other news, our kitchen is a disaster area. I got a new faucet and garbage disposal, and a filtration system that goes under the counter, which will be nice. Well, when we got everything open we realized that the channel that holds the screws so that your sink doesn't rise out of the cabinetry was broken, so we couldn't just replace the clips - we had to replace the entire sink. We're five, maybe six trips to the hardware store into this project right now. BJ skipped work today to finish it (hooray for self-employment!). I have learned that I have mad plumber's putty skillz. I also have the sense of humor of your average 12 year old boy, and should not be allowed around "caulk," like, ever.
It's going to be really fabulous when BJ gets it done, though. It's one of those faucets that has a built in sprayer, which will make just about everything easier, cleaning wise. It also has two different spray patterns - one like a regular faucet and one more like a shower head, only smaller of course. We made sure we still had a tap hole for our hot water tap, because I couldn't live without that. The disposal will be much quieter, which will be terrific. I think the clips/channel on the old sink failed because the old disposal shook the cabinets like crazy when I ran it. And it vomited on me. That was charming.
We've had pizza, donuts, and Noodles, I guess we'll get Chinese for dinner. What's going on with you this Monday?
