We're just like the squirrels

A kitchen conversation in my house this morning, while I was preparing a few freezer meals.

Lily: You're kind of like the squirrels.

Me: How's that?

Lily: You're making food and putting it away for another day. You're just like the squirrels. I bet when they come home on a cold winter day and don't want to make anything for supper, they remember their acorns that they hid and just go get some of those to eat. That's just like you when you don't feel like making supper or you don't know what to make, you just go to the freezer and take one of these out. And boom, just like that you put it in the oven and supper's all ready.

Me: You're right. We are just like the squirrels.

Smart little girl. Sometimes I am still amazed at the childhood musings in my home.

I am also thankful that the conversation didn't go in the direction I was anticipating, which was her making some mention of weight and storing things away in my belly area! I'm not sure why that came to mind when she mentioned squirrels and storing things away.....


  1. Thanks for the good chuckle about the squirrel and winter weight

  2. I love the perspective children provide!

  3. Hahaha... what a bright girl!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
