Is Cannibalism Back In Style?

Jacob has an amusing new antic. It took a few times of him doing this for me to
realize what he was doing, and now that I understand, I can't stop giggling about it.

It started with him trying to force me to sit on the kitchen floor on a paper towel.
I wasn't sure why, the linoleum was dirty and I didn't want to do it.

He tried this several times, and I did sit down for a second, but I was unsure what the point was- and there is always a point to what Jacob makes/wears/acts out.

After several attempts to get me involved in the mystery game, he got a plate out of the cupboard, and tried to get me to sit on that as well. Whatever- my butt does not come close to fitting on a plate and I didn't really want to prove myself right.

Jacob caught on that I didn't want to comply and thought up an alternate plan. He taped the plate to my rear-end. If that wasn't weird enough (despite me being totally used to having things taped onto me by this kid) he started to pretend to eat me.

I got it! He was serving me up on a platter!

Since I like to give Jacob his food on a paper towel, of course that was he preferred way of dining. But stubborn old mom needed a little more to understand the game.

He is so adorable pretending to nibble on my arms and stomach, making gulping sounds and laughing at himself.

This evening he brought me a sandwich he had made: bread, ketchup, cheese, and action figure. Not sure where this hunger for people came from, but its keeping me entertained!

I am sure with the right seasonings you too would taste just like chicken. Does Jacob like chicken? Teehee, that is such a great story. Thanks for always letting me live vicariously through you.
