I have been telling Nate that when he eats food, it goes into his tummy. He always raises his shirt to look. Tonight, he asked if I was eating rice and beans. I was. I opened my mouth to show him. I swallowed and let him see my mouth empty, telling him the rice and beans were now in my tummy.
He proceeded to raise my shirt to look for the rice and beans. He pretended that he could see rice and beans in there. Then, he started saying something over and over, as he does, especially if it makes people laugh.
"Hey, wait a minute! I see...fruits and vegetables, a piece of chicken, milk, pastas... [a bit less enthusiastically] but no cake."
