Chew Chew

May 22, 2012


Every so often we have sandwiches for snack at school. Either just jelly (because we can’t have peanut butter) or bologna (because it’s so hard to spell). The preschoolers get half a sandwich, and each time I think I should get one of those cutters that makes one sandwich into two shapes. (I’m particularly fond of the one that makes dinosaurs.)

This weekend I actually picked one up. Trains!

Lauren: “Trains! Who doesn’t want to eat a train?”

Lloyd (looking at it skeptically): “Yeah, but doesn’t it cut off the crusts?”

Lauren: “Tracks! Who doesn’t want to eat tracks?”

Through the tunnel and into my belleh.

I look forward to the next sandwich day.

    I immediately wondered about the cut-off crusts. Calling them tracks is genius. Do kids tend to not eat crusts even if they are still connected? I don’t remember doing that as a kid, but childhood was a while back, so maybe it’s just my bad memory.

    I am only confident of spelling bologna if I sing the jingle, “Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A”

    Lucky preschoolers!!!

    You have to eat the tracks to get the train where it is going? Every preschooler will eat the tracts now. How did you know that?
