Hold the Flavor Please!

I just must share my daughter's most recent 'Kid's say the darnedest things' moment.

This is actually a picture of her from the Fourth of July, but you get the idea, the girl loves her corn on the cob!!

Jon had decided to grill our corn on the cob for dinner. Natalie is a huge fan of corn on the cob, so though she wasn't sharing in our grilled steaks I had made sure to get her some corn to share with us. As Jon brings in the slightly charred cobs of sunny deliciousness, Natalie scrunches up her nose in disgust and says "Can you take the brown off mine?"
Jon and I chuckle a little and he replies, "That's called flavor! It's what makes it good!"
After a few moments of deep thought, Natalie looks up again at Jon and asks very sweetly and innocently, "Can you take the flavor off mine?"
At this point Jon and I are laughing pretty heartily as Jon says "Sorry, but no kiddo!"
And Natalie refused to eat her flavorful corn that night! But I sure did enjoy mine, poor girl didn't know what she was missing out on!

  1. That's hilarious! She sure doesn't know what she's missing does she?

  2. Aw, so cute! My daughter loves corn on the cob too! Found you through Tiny Talk Tuesday.

  3. LOL! That is so cute. LOVE that shot of her. Yes, she clearly loves corn. It took awhile for our girls to adjust to grilled hot dogs...those marks just don't look right. Never thought to call them the flavor though :)


I enjoy hearing what you think about this!
Thank you so much for sharing!
