I can only assume that everyone that has a sibling also has a long list of that sibling’s behaviors that are truly irksome. One habit my sister-in-law has that really annoys my wife is to eat out the inside of a piece of baguette bread, leaving only the crust. It’s not that she doesn’t like the crust; it’s just an idle-minded activity that she finds herself doing at the dining table. Personally, I can see the appeal of munching absentmindedly on the soft crumbs, and I can also see how it would be annoying to find the bread hollowed out when you go to break off a piece. So you can imagine my wife’s horror to witness this very same bread digging behavior in her very own daughter!
We didn’t give her the bread when we caught her doing this. It had been on the dining room table a little too close to the edge, just within reach of a hungry toddler.
A mouse has gotten the bread!
Up to her elbow in baguette!
Mommy still thinks it’s cute, but that will wear off eventually.
Fleeing the scene.
