So Hurtful

One of Anthony's most favorite meals on earth (as evidenced by the millions of times I've blogged pictures of it) is spaghetti and meatsauce. Since it's such an easy meal to make, I try to oblige him at least once a month. AND, since it's such an easy meal to make, I make lots of it and freeze it.

I made a fresh batch of spaghetti and meatsauce yesterday for dinner. Anthony, as usual, ate like a pig. He barely came up for air while eating. The whole plateful was gone, literally, in minutes. When he finally put his shovel, er...fork, down he looked up with a surprised expression and said, "Make mouf (mouth) hurt, Mommy!" Apparently I was a little heavy handed on the seasoning and it was a tad spicy. By a tad I mean that even I felt the burn. I felt so bad! Mark got him some more milk and Anthony drank it down in one big gulp.

Of course, now Mark won't let me live this down. I'm such a terrible mom.

Isn't it great that they can tell you these things!

And, no, you are not a bad mommy...you're just getting him used to that Cajun cookin'.

OH..how sad..poor guy! He must have still enjoyed it though, otherwise he would have said that after the first bite..and not after finishing his plate.
