Because she has it backward. Bacteria is plural; bacterium is singular.


Shhh...I'm waiting for her to get it. LOL

I was just sneaking some chocolate (Cadbury DairyMilk Peppermint, oh yum).

There was a sticky note on it, saying 'High in saturated fat'. Hmmm.

I noticed the salt shaker. A sticky note on it says 'think twice'.

The container of cashew nuts? "Only have 30g."

Who knows what else I'll find.



ETA: On the muesli:Contains palm oil!!
ETA #2: The falafel mix says: Too much sodium!

Just realised they are colour-coded too. She's done a traffic-light system. The red ones are bad, bad, bad...she better not have put anything on my coffee. That would be crossing a line. :001_smile:


Is she posting these for you or for herself?

If they're for her I would actually be concerned about a developing eating disorder. Just seems a bit obsessive (eating disorders run in my family so I'm primed to watch for warning signs).

Oh! Lol - I misunderstood and thought you were agreeing with her that it was true but strange. Sorry!

I had a mommy brain fart today. I bickered with DD where I insisted, quite vehemently might I add, that Ladakh(a tourist destination) is in Nepal. It's actually a part of India at the northernmost tip. *blush*.

No worries. I forgot to add an eye roll in that post. I'll go fix it now.

Thanks Maize.

 

She's posting them for her Dad, primarily. She was likely munching chocolate while doing it  ;)

 

But I get what you're saying and eating disorders are certainly on my radar already.

 

She has shown no obvious signs at this stage and doesn't mention weight, body shape, self-image etc.

 

But she is perfectionistic and struggles on and off with anxiety and OCD-ish stuff, so it's on my radar.

 

Thank you for your concern.

A (newly 9yo): No I didn't!  You did!
L: No, you did!
A: No, You!
L: YOU!
A: You you you!
L: You you you you you!
A: You a thousand!
L: You a thousand billion!
A: You infinity!
L: You infinity times infinity!
A: You infinity factorial!
L: You infinity to the infinity-ith power!
A: [long silence]
L: HA!

My 4yo came up to me with his glass of water a couple days ago and said, "I would like a little solid in my liquid please."

I was so surprised I just stood there until he said, "Ice, Mum. I would like ice." (and looked at me like I was clueless!)

Because of my insecurity and desire for a little structure in our lives, my twins have been doggedly working through WWS.  And since they have worked so hard, I gave them a break  and let them do unjournaling prompts all week.  My ds was thrilled and 15 minutes later sent me this.  The prompt was to tell a fake news story (appropriate, eh?) as believably as possible. 

 

It has recently been found that eating ice cream during a lightning storm increases your appetite for cold food. Consuming large quantities can, over time, cause you to be unable to eat any food over 32 degrees Fahrenheit. This bizarre symptom was first contracted by Harold Churchill, the owner of Churchill’s Chills, one of the largest ice cream producing companies in the nation.

 

“It’s shocking. I am simply unable to eat warm foods.” Churchill says. “It’s a real shame, too-- grilled cheeseburgers were one of my favorite foods. This unfortunate happenstance makes it almost impossible to go out to dinner with my family.”

 

The cause was isolated by Rodney Garland in 2010, when one of the most severe lightning storms seen in years hit Frankfort, Kentucky. Thanks to him, we can now be safe from this life-ruining syndrome. Make sure to warn your family and friends about the dangers of ice cream, and have a safe and warm-food day.

This sounds like something I would hear on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.
