I Eat My Peas..

I eat my peas with honey;
I've done it all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny,
but it keeps them on my knife.

Dad use to quote the little poem each time Mom served up peas, and since my kids are addicted to peas I've found myself quoting it each time I serve them up. My kids roll their eyes and say, "That's so gross Mom, you don't really eat your peas with honey, do you?" No, I don't, because like them I'm thinking "eww." Instead I point out that Poppy use to say it all the time, and since he's not here to say it, then I will. Passing on the tradition, you know. The kids weren't completely impressed, but I told them it's okay because when they have their own kids, they can torture them by quoting it too. Funny thing is, I don't actually quote the one about the rocket in my pocket, but I think about that one too..

Cute. My daughter will eat a variety of foods, but peas, potatoes and mustard are disgusting to her. LOL!
