Scavengers

I wanted a little snack before I took the girls up for bath, because after bath we go directly into L's bedtime routine, then into E's dinner and bedtime. I heated up a plate of ginger-marinaded eggplant and sat down with it on the couch. L crawled up into my lap and tried reaching for whole slices of eggplant. If I hadn't peeled off the skin and eaten it myself (just to save L from choking on it), I don't think I would have gotten any eggplant at all.

So I asked M to bring me something to eat. He brought me a lovely plate of cheese and crackers. Then L reached for the crackers and began eating them, and E reached for the squares of cheese and began eating them, and now I have to go to (their) bed hungry. Pin It
