What Am I Raising?

I had to ask myself this question yesterday as Cooper did two very nasty and strange things.
First: He came running up to me today carrying this dead bird in his hand. Gross! Of course, he was fascinated by it and kept trying to revive it. How do you explain to a 2 year old that the darn thing is dead and no amount of stroking will bring it back?? It was a cute bird, though.
Then: Coop is being very sneaky and has that "I've done something I don't want you to know about" look. Uh oh! I asked him what he was eating. Nothing. Is that bread? Yeah. Oh my! He had dug out the top bun from my day old Chick-fil-A sandwich, which was residing in the garbage can (and not on the top of it). Gross! He was going to town on that thing. Oh well...just one day old bread sitting in a stale garbage isn't the worst thing he could eat.

Future profession: Dumpster Diver. At least I know he won't ever starve!

no it's not the worst thing...I was thinking you were gonna say he was eating part of the bird or something!
