The Very Hungry Elizabeth

With apologies to Eric Carle.


In the light of the chandelier a little girl played with her food.


On Monday and Tuesday her mommy and daddy wondered if she was eating enough.  So they started to write it all down.


On Wednesday she ate nine tablespoons of fruit, cereal, rice and bread. But she was still hungry and mommy had to feed her six times.


On Thursday she ate fourteen tablespoons of fruit, cereal, rice, cheese, chicken and vegetables. But she was still hungry and mommy had to feed her eight times.


On Friday she ate fifteen tablespoons of fruit, cereal, rice, cheese, lemon and a cookie. But she was still hungry and mommy had to feed her nine times.


On Saturday she ate 3 peach slices, 1 piece of cauliflower, 2 pieces of broccoli, 2 slices of cheese, 2 handfuls of cheerios, 3/4 cup of rice pasta and tomato sauce, a handful of blue berries, a tiny bit of vegetable root soup, 40 mL of blueberry, carrot and blackberry juice (diluted with water) and a small piece of cherry chocolate cake.  Altogether that was twenty-three tablespoons worth!


That night she gave mommy a break.

I love pictures of babies feeding themselves so this goes down as one of my favorite series of pictures.
