My children have this strange obsession with food. I knew that my oldest one from the day she was born loved to eat but I didn't understand to what degree. The other night at dinner my kids started talking about different dreams that they have had lately. The little ones of course I could tell were making up their dreams and that is o.k. at least I know they have an imagination. But then my oldest began to tell me about her dreams.
Here they are: The first dream she had about a week ago was that she was a big piece of bacon and she could nibble on herself all day long and the size of this piece of bacon never got any smaller. (O.K. I have to ask myself what child dreams about being a piece of bacon)
The second one is that she is in Rain Forest Cafe and a monkey comes to life and begins to chase her. Instead of running to her family she tells me that she tells all of us that she loves us and runs off with her big plate of nachos.
I sat there and couldn't help but laugh. My eleven year old loves food so much she dreams about it. She is not overweight and is a very active child, thank goodness because this dreaming about food could become a problem if it got out of control. Children and their imaginations are so amazing.
