Time for an intervention?

Desi is learning new words.  I was talking about them in an earlier post.  Some new ones are Caligula (sp?) and this morning he said Ninja.

But...he's got some real words, too.  Among them are Yellow (Yell-la), Blue (Boo), Lights on (La-La), Thank you (La-La) and Daddy is the coolest dude in the entire universe (La-La). 

His favorite word, however, is also his favorite thing to eat in the world. 


Either that...or he's racist toward white folk.

I'm not sure if the addiction began when he learned to say the word or if he learned to say the word because he was an addict.  I imagine that it could be trial and error.  I'll keep making noises until I get close to something that makes them bring me that crunchy goodness.  Oh, Look!  I put these two noises together (Ca-Ca) and they get all gooey and excited and they bring me my favorite thing.  I'll have to keep doing this.

Anyway...first thing in the morning, right after milk, "Ca-Ca."  First thing, once we get home, "Ca-Ca."  First thing when we sit him down for dinner, "Ca-Ca."  Immediatly after he eats the cracker we just gave him, "Ca-Ca."  It's becoming a problem.  We were worried that all the carbs were blocking him up.  There were a couple periods of multiple days without poop followed by a painful one.  But, I think he's moving past that.

Still, it never fails.  Ca-Ca, Ca-Ca, Ca-Ca.  We may have to hide the box in the garage.

I can't NOT chime in on this Supreme Court thing

So, it's no secret on this page that I am rapidly pro-life.  I don't beat around the bush on this topic.  But, what you may not know...
