Right now Russell and Pearl usually split a jar of food for breakfast. Anna fed Pearl this morning but Russell fell asleep in his chair eating kix, so I didn't get to give him his official breakfast til he woke up. I got his out of the fridge and started feeding it to him, carrying on my running conversation like I do. "Look Russell! Yum! You're eating pineapple, pear, and avocado."
"WHAT?!? That is so weird," says Anna. I ask her if she even read the name of it this morning, since she was the one who got it out to feed to Pearl.
"No, I just checked to see if it had acid and that's all."
"Wait. Wow, that sounds awful. Like we drug the babies! Oh no!" Silly things make us laugh, and it's yet another example of something that is totally normal in this job but would be extremely odd in another setting. Pearl's been having a little trouble with citrus lately and so we check to see if there's added citric acid in the jars. There wasn't, by the way.
I'm having trouble getting pictures on here lately, which is part of why I haven't posted in so long- I like to put them up. Too many posts with no pictures make me feel like it's just Too Long: Didn't Read. Also I've been busy, and also lazy. Let's just be honest. Anyway, I'll try to be better with little anecdote stuff, even if I can't figure out the picture issue for a bit.
