A few seconds ago, as we progressed through our normal morning routine, my 2 year old gave our dog her treats, which had peanut butter on them. Not special dog peanut butter, just plain old Peter Pan peanut butter. My two year old had peanut butter on her fingers and asked what she should do. I said just lick it off. It was peanut butter from the spoon . Anyways, no sooner then she had put her finger in her mouth, she ran to the bathroom. I was worried. “What’s wrong?” Gabs: “Nothing. Me spit. Why you feed me dog food! Now, me sick! NOW..me have to go to the DOCTUH!!!!” I felt bad for her, because obviously it grossed her out that the peanut butter that had made its way onto her finger would eventually end up in the dogs mouth. But in that moment, my 2 year old irate with a mouth full of spit, going off on me…was pretty priceless.
