It's NOT Chicken!

If you missed it, look at the title of this post. That is a common phrase in my house.

Anytime I cook something other than beef (which is most of the time), my daughter makes a comment about the "chicken." It might be a positive comment like, "I like this chicken!" It might be negative such as, "Do I have to eat the chicken?" Or it could be something neutral like, "Is there more chicken?" It doesn't matter that we are eating turkey or even pork. It's all chicken to her.

What's worse is that we often have to correct her mulitply times, reminding her that not everything we eat is chicken.

Just wait until she starts pointing out farm animals and listing what is made using them! Just yesterday, the girls were reciting everything that comes from a pig. At least they are not boycotting eggs anymore. They did for a while when they realized that baby chicks came hatched from eggs...and that we eat they were convinced we were eating baby chicks!

I think this is very funny, because my twin boys since they were little bitty have called all meat "chicken" even if we explained it was not chicken! lol I didnt know anyone else had this problem...Kids can be so funny sometimes.
