Sometimes I take Lucas to the grocery store and end up coming home with things that I don't really want or need.  But, today he picked out Garlic.
I like garlic.
Seems harmless enough.
I put all the groceries away a few hours ago.  Then at dinner time, Lucas asked for
"that thing"...
that we bought today...
"that's spicey".

I just could not place what it was until the lightbulb went on in my head.  He wanted the garlic.  ok.....and what do you want to do with the garlic?
So I peeled a clove of garlic and gave it to him ---
He said "watch this..." and then said "I need milk"....
He proceeded to eat the whole clove of garlic....THE WHOLE THING!  just chewed it up and ate it.  And took some good gulps of milk to boot.

Then he proceeded to eat the FOUR over easy eggs I made for him along with several bites of pork ribs.  Then he asked for another clove of garlic.  This time he engaged Daddy in a dare of sorts...."not for momma"  So this must be a true test of manhood or something.  I cut a tiny piece off the clove and gave it to Peter to eat.  And Lucas ate ANOTHER clove of garlic sans the small piece I gave Peter.

Happy Boy!
Burping Daddy....that's all I've got to say....Peter has been belching ever since he left the table and Lucas is not phased.

So there ya have it.  Who knew garlic was such a delicacy???


  1. Wow! What a young man you have on your hands! I pitty you for having to smell your men for the next couple of day.

  2. heidi-that is so awesome!!! do you know that garlic is a natural antibiotic and and natural antihistamine! he can just pop some cloves when he gets sick (which is what we give our girls)--and he won't fight you over it!!
