And speaking of dinosaurs...

Prehistoric times were brutal. Smaller creatures were low on the food chain for the big boys. The T-Rex ruled the world with fierce teeth and bloodthirsty tendencies.
And then he evolved.
Into my middle chicken.

That girl can put away meat like she has a hollow leg. Carnivorous. I honestly think that a T-Rex would tuck it's tail and run away in terror from her.
Case in point:
We went to an all-you-can-eat buffet the other night. Middle chicken proceeds to load down her plate with steak, beef tips, roast, and pork chops. Then when she's through with that, she looks up and says, "I don't know whether I want ice-cream or another steak."
I had to laugh. Because the last time we were there, she ate FOUR pieces of steak. For her birthday last year, she ate five pork chops. The girl can put away the protein.
She doesn't much care for bread and such. She would rather have meat. And lots of it.
We told her she better purchase some cows when she's older, or else she'll be broke. She got this rather disgusted look on her face and said, "I'll buy it in the store. I don't want to know it."
So I guess as long as it's's fair game.

She's 11 1/2. And she's bottomless.

I'm really enjoying your blog. A mutual friend, Nancy Bond, directed me here. I'm soon to join the ranks as a Whiskey Creek Press author (signed a contract last week).

I'm off to do more reading.

Ceri: Thanks! I'm glad you like the blog. It's a lovely place to let it all hang out. *laughing*

I adore Nancy. Very elegant. And a good friend.

Congrats on the contract!!! That's great news! Looking forward to seeing you one some of the loops.

My 11 yo is bottomless too. I keep telling her to enjoy it while she can. Mine is a carb freak though.

Too funny.

Briana: Tell me about it! Maybe it's just the age. But I don't remember my oldest one being like this.

Seriously, Em (8) can pack it in like no other kid I know, it's appalling! Hey, at least your chicken has got a built in propensity for the Atkins diet; be dammed those evil carbs!!
