Mormons Don’t Go to Confessional

So I’ll do it in my blog.

Confession #1: I let my daughter put Ketchup on ANYTHING if it will get her to eat food.

Conversation this afternoon as the fridge door stood open:
Laylee: Is that Ketchup Sauce?
Me: Nope. It’s Mirin.
Laylee: Is that Lemon Juice?
Me: Yes.
Laylee: Is that rice?
Me: No. It’s diced garlic.
Laylee: Is that Ketchup Sauce?
Me: No. (It is a bottle of chocolate sauce but I decide its best not to open up the Pandora’s box that is….a liquid form of the “c”word in our very fridge.)
Laylee: Is that Ketchup Sauce?
Me: No. That’s Teriyaki.
Laylee: Oh, is it for Carrie?
Me: No. It’s not Carrie’s Yaki.
I close the fridge.

Confession #2: Since I was in elementary school, I have eaten Kit-Kat bars like this:

Confession #3: We have already re-bought Halloween candy “for the trick-or-treaters” twice this season.

Whew! I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

Side-note: Blogger ate this entry right after I typed it and uploaded all my photos the first time. Laylee was sitting on my lap when Blogger lost its mind. I asked her to get down because “mommy needs to whig out now.” She got down but stood at my feet pleading, “I wanna wig too, mommy. Please. Please can I have a wig too?”

I eat 3 Musketeer bars like that. Very satisfying.

ummmmm... I think you've been taking a page from my Kit Kat book. Do you ever indulge in those nasty Lil' Debbie Nutty Bars? I'm curious to see if this is just some strange Mormon eating thang.

That's how I eat Twix bars. Yum. Just had one an hour ago, or I'd be tempted to go get one right now.

Little C is so cute and hilarious.

Yes to the Little Debbie things. I also think they're nasty. Also, I think these eating patterns transcend religious boundaries.

Kathryn, You know I love you as much as anyone in all the world, but I have always thought your kit kat eating ritual was just a tad freakish. Perhaps it is time to look into your "eating disorder" with a professional. Remember. I have also seen how you (and all your crazy siblings) eat rainbow jello.

Laughed out loud at the the confessions on your blog. You have such a talent for this--you're like a Mormon, hip Sarah Vowell without the annoying cynicism.

LOL--this confession reminds me it's Tuesday so I've got to come up with a "Confessional Tuesday" for my blog.

My daughter eats Ketchup sandwiches--ONLY ketchup on it.

I eat Twix bars similarly to how you eat a kit kat--bite off the caramel part first, then have the cookie separate!

Ketchup sandwiches? Don't tell Laylee!
