A Young Consumer

Nyssa consumes her burger and fries. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"In order to know whether a human being is young or old, offer it food of different kinds at short intervals. If young, it will eat anything at any hour of the day or night." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes (American Physician, Poet and Humorist. 1809-1894)
It was always best to just let Nyssa have her cut up hamburger with cheese and her fries with ketchup and stand back. Notice, she didn't want the bun, just the meat. That will amaze her now, as much as she likes the hot homemade rolls her grandmother makes especially for her. The ketchup was a challenge. She always had as much on her face and in her hair as she managed to get in her tummy. The same held true for other foods as well. Fortunately, kids don't shrink in water and stains come off faces, fingers and arms (occasionally necks and legs too) and out of hair with just a bit of soap.
