We are sitting at dinner.

My 3 year old daughter suddenly stands up on her chair, grabs one wayward piece of lettuce off of her salad plate,and tosses it to the ground, disgusted.

“Someone put a leaf in my salad!” she yells before sitting down and finishing her salad, where apparently the rest of the lettuce is not leaves.

    Well I guess she told the leaf. No leaves in salads. I am assuming this is some kind of spring mix?

  2. 1girl2boys says:

    Oh my goodness, that is hilarious!

  3. The Lazy Organizer says:

    We have the same problem at our house. One time someone DARED put a hamburger patty on my daugher’s cheeseburger. Aparently cheeseburgers are only supposed to have cheese!

  4. carrien says:

    [grin]HOw dare you! I guess she taught you a lesson about salad prep, no leaves. Tsk, what were you thinking?

  5. Becca says:

    The other day I dared to put ice in my 3 year old’s ice water. The nerve of some people! And what is it with 3 yr olds?

  6. Jennifer says:

    Yeah, I’ve heard that about princesses. Absolutely no leaves in their salad. Otherwise it’s off to the guillotine. I see she let you off lightly. Lucky you.

  7. Rae says:

    Kai always asks, worried, “are these the kind of leaves we can EAT?” as though I sometimes get a kick out of putting inedible leaves in his salad.

  8. Joy H says:

    maybe she should just be glad you didn’t put SPINACH in it.

  9. Antique Mommy says:

    That’s a new tradition at our house now that we have an almost 3-year-old — kind of like burping as a way of complimenting the chef - stand in your chair and throw some food on the floor. Salud!

    just the giggle I needed this morning…..:)

  11. madre-terra says:

    Who’s to understand the mind of a 3 yr.old?
    Actually who’s to understand anything.

  12. Heather says:

    LOL! She’s a riot!

  13. peepnroosmom says:

    How funny is that?

  14. Heather says:

    At our house, my 3-year-old will not allow us to put salad on sandwiches. I can’t imagine what chaos would ensue should she make the connection between salad (AKA lettuce) and leaves.

  15. Nicki says:

    A priceless moment, just wish you had the video camera out at the time. That would have made a great video.

  16. Meg says:

    Brilliant. I love 3-year-old logic.

  17. cassie-b says:

    3-year olds. You gotta love them!
    Thanks for sharing.


  18. rachel says:

    what is it with 3 year olds? is the world a constant affront to them or what?

    at least they are cute.

  19. Carrie from Life With Us says:

    oh. my. word. that was so funny even my husband thought it hilarious! :)

    I once found a blade of grass in my salad.
