Language Barrier, What’s A Snack?

We’ve come to the point where my child is talking more and more each day, I think he converses more with his stuffed tiger than he does with any living person. He carries him around and asks him what he wants for breakfast, if he’s tired, if he wants to watch Thomas… ect. Unfortunately there still seems to be a bit of a language barrier, as I’m continuously reminded of.

This morning for instance, he was up early and I simply wasn’t feeling like getting breakfast going anytime soon so I asked him if he would like a snack. Now I’m not exactly sure what a child’s idea of a snack is, my definition is it’s a small amount of food (usually finger food) which can be eaten between meals… such as grapes, apple slices, and so on.

So after my son confirms that he indeed wants a snack we head to the kitchen, I start naming off food which he tells me “that’s not a snack.”  By the time I’ve named everything off that we have in the cupboards and the fridge I’m annoyed because apparently NOTHING in the house is considered a snack. Then again, what does he know? He’s a little over 2 and a half! So I dumped some fishy crackers, some fruit snacks, and a piece of apple on a plate and Voila! A snack!

About vanitymom

I'm here to talk about not only the joys of motherhood but also the (not so much joys) of living in a high society world that you're judged upon your looks... where I live you need to be a 7 to gain beach access, an 8 to walk around half naked in the summertime and atleast a 9 to hold your head up high. I'm Vanity Mom. I will be talking about things such as parenting (of course) beauty tips for moms, exercise, and eating healthy... all while doing this with a kid biting the hell out of your leg because he's teething.
