Digestion Digest


Zaya loves learning about lots of different strange things. I know that this will get us into trouble someday. So far, he's only said embarrassing things in front of family members. So far.

Every Saturday my husband's Grandma K brings us fresh baked zwieback. (Like a sweet dinner roll with a little hat) She brings them in a brown paper bag and my children attack her like ravenous lions on a lame antelope. Mim calls out "Bee-baa! Bee-baa!" and starts tearing into it. It's fun to watch, if a little bit embarrassing. Last Saturday, as Zaya was stuffing his bread down his throat he told Grandma K, "When I eat my zwieback it goes down my esophogus, and then it goes into my stomach, then my small intestine and then it goes into my large intestine, and then it is poop, and I go to the potty." She thought that was pretty funny. I can't wait until he walks up to one of the deacons in our church and says the same thing. (rueful sigh)

Boys. What is it with the fascination with bodily functions?

Zwieback sounds pretty good.

I have a kid like that, too. He's 17 now, and still has all the info at the ready, but is a little more tactful about when he says something, lol.
