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!

Thanks for the laugh! I'm just sitting here imagining the whole scene in my head and I can't help but giggle along with you. That kid has a funny and very contagious laugh!

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.
