Tomato Discoveries of a Disturbing Nature

I was fixing dinner the other night and noticed my 7-year-old daughter quietly playing with a large can of tomato sauce and small can of tomato paste I had on my kitchen counter.  I could tell she was pretending the two cans were playing and talking together.  I’ve always known my daughter is very imaginative and was amused at her latest idea.

Then I listened closer.

Paste says, “Oh what has happened here.  My mother has died.  Oh no!”
“Ah and now I’ve cut off my arm.” says Sauce.
“It’s bleeding!  Oh no, the blood is everywhere!”  says Paste.

My daughter is no longer allowed to play with tomato-based products.

  1. Haha! I love listening to my son play with his toys and what he has them say – sometimes its hilarious and other times a little scary! 🙂

  2. hahaha, this was too funny – in a disturbing sort of way 😉 All I would hear from my kids is….ewww, are you using tomato sauce? I hate sauce. I hate tomatoes. You're not going to use much of this stuff are you?!

  3. omg, this definitely made me laugh. I'm glad I'm not the only one whose kid says strange things sometimes!!

  4. Ha ha! Love it. I always get a little frightened when I listen to my daughters toy conversations! I can almost always be sure to hear something I have said in my less-than-perfect moments.
    Love your blog. I'm a new follower from TT. Hope you will follow back!

  5. Oh my goodness!! I love it!! Too funny!!

  6. Haha! Oh the random things children say!

  7. This reminds me of the bathtub conversation my daughter (3) and I had tonight.

    She had her pony and her play horse in each hand, and she was playing with the pony very close to her “gina,” as she calls it. I told her to get the pony out of her private place because that is just for her (she's getting curious, so we're trying to emphasize that only she is allowed to touch her private places or Mommy and Daddy when we are cleaning her).

    She looked at me and said, “My pony isn't in my gina. My horsey was in my gina.”

    I couldn't help but bust out laughing! Thank goodness she doesn't really know what she is saying, and that thankfully, the horse was safe and sound running on the side of the tub.
