Conversation with Lila.

It's meal-time in our house.

Here's the conversation that takes place upwards of twice a day with my almost two-year-old.


Me: Lila, do you want to eat?

Lila: No. MEAT.

Me: Lila do you want to eat?

Her: NO. MEAT.

Lila: Do you want to eeeeeat? [I enunciate that there is no "m" in front of "eat".]

Her : NO [insert pause leading up to:] MEEEEEEAT!!!


I give up.

Me: "Lila, do you want to meat?

Her: "Uh. Yah."


My daughter likes to meat her food. Or meet. Whichever you prefer.


  1. LOL! This made me laugh so hard because it reminds me of our house (with an almost 3 year old). She makes up words or names she wants to be called, that we have a hard time pronouncing to her liking. Kids are so funny.

  2. that is my favorite! i loved when i was there and she was saying this; it was very cute.

  3. LOVE IT!! I hope I can meet Lila before she grows up too much. She sounds like a hoot.
