Kids like to play with food. It's inevitable. I can't tell you how many milk bubbles I've seen in my life as a mom! A couple of years ago, my kids were sitting at the kitchen table having lunch. A bologna sandwich was sitting in front of them. I watched as my son took out the slice of bologna and poked a hole through it with his finger.
"What are you doing, Bubba?" I asked.
"You'll see." He poked another hole across from the first. Then he poked another. When he was done, he held it up to his face. "How do you like my bologna face, Mama?"
I shook my head. "Nice, Bubba."
My daughter thought that was an excellent idea, too, so she made a bologna face. Soon both of my offspring were sporting bologna faces.
"You kids are full of bologna!" I said.
"No, we're not," my son said. Then he ate his bologna face. "But now I am!"
I bet they have fun with olives as well!ReplyDelete
If they liked olives, they probably would. They're not big olive fans.Delete
Haha...brought back memories.ReplyDelete
Did you make bologna faces, too?Delete
Oh man I used to do this. I wonder why my kids never did. Still to be a kid and take pleasure in the smallest of things.ReplyDelete

What's life if you've never made a bologna face? ;)Delete
haha nothing like playing with foodReplyDelete
It's one of the best things ever!Delete
All kids are full of bologna! Apples are fun to bite a face in then chomp into them.ReplyDelete
I don't think my kids have ever done that. Maybe I'll try it. ;0)Delete
It sounds like you roll with the flow pretty well. I don't remember my parents having a lot of patience for playing with food (when we were older). My mom has hilarious baby photos of me covered in beets... but that is baby stuff.ReplyDelete
I try not to sweat the small stuff!Delete
Being able to make bologna faces makes up for the lack of nutrition in the bologna itself! I've always loved bologna and just assumed everyone made faces with it. :)ReplyDelete
Haha! Bologna is good for something!Delete
LOL My kids do things like that, too!ReplyDelete
It's funny to watch!Delete
Kids are so literal! Love 'em.ReplyDelete
They sure are!Delete
I remember when my kids made bologna faces...these are the real joys of childhood, like playing in cardboard boxes :)ReplyDelete

I think almost every kid has made a bologna face.Delete
Kids are too awesome. I love this. Way to share something cheery and fun every day, Sherry. You don't know how much I love your posts.ReplyDelete
Awww, thanks! Glad to share the sunshine!Delete
Kids are spontaneous!ReplyDelete
They could teach us adults how to have fun... it would be lovely, minus the messy factor, of course...

It's too bad we adults have to get so serious. Maybe we all should make bologna faces!Delete
Cute story, Sherry. Kids are amazing the way they can be so literal. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Aw, I used to love making bologna faces :) Fun story!ReplyDelete
My mom yelled at me for playing with food, so I don't think I made too many bologna faces.Delete
Lol! Funny kids!ReplyDelete
They sure are!Delete
Bubba is so entertaining! What a neat little guy.ReplyDelete
Never a dull moment with Bubba around!Delete
Daughter number 2 used to pant herself with sauces. Hair and all.ReplyDelete
That would be a little messy! Does she still paint?Delete
Ah, so that's where the phrase came from. Don't all kids do that. I did that. Bologna is one of my favorite luncheon meats. Way to go kids. :-)ReplyDelete
My kids had a great time making bologna faces!Delete
*LOL* Bubba is a natural comedian! :)ReplyDelete
That he is!Delete
Bubba Balogna!! Fun story. :DReplyDelete
A good "B" word from the Bubba!Delete
Would you ever consider pictures with some of these fun posts? Bologna faces would be great fun to see and we wouldn't be seeing their real faces. Though I understand, some bloggers don't want pictures of their families on the Internet.ReplyDelete
Cheers and boogie boogie.
I am trying to protect my kids a little, so I don't post pictures of them here. The bologna face picture probably would've been a good one, but I didn't take a picture of it when it happened.Delete
I thought that might be the reason, which I totally get. But yeah, bummer about the bologna faces. That would have been fun to see, and hid them.Delete
Double bummer, no pictures for yourself either. Though I'm sure if asked, Bubba would do it again in a heart beat. Though I see him doing a ham face, turkey face, all kinds of fun faces.
Children always like to play with food........then eat it. I suppose it taste better to them. Mine used to enjoy messing around with chocolate pudding. ah! happy memories.ReplyDelete
Ah yes. Chocolate pudding. That's a wee bit messier than bologna faces!Delete
Bubba has a cool sense of humour!ReplyDelete
That he does!Delete
Not just kids either, I love making faces in my mashed potato.ReplyDelete
Ha! That's funny!Delete
