Everyone was enjoying the pound cake I made for the New Year, and my sister said, "You put your foot in this cake!"
Later I noticed that my four-year old wasn't finishing his slice. I asked him why and he said, "I don't want it because you put your feet in it." We laughed and tried to explain to him it was only an expression, but he wasn't have any of it.
That evening he came to me and rested his head on my shoulder. He said, "Mommy, will you please make another cake tomorrow and don't put your feet in it?"
At least now I know how to keep them from eating treats off of my plate.
