It is exactly like that. Exactly.

never thought about putting chocolate chips in my oat meal. always was a brown sugar man myself.

Chocolate chips and/or sprinkles make most things palatable to people under 10. We've used this trick with so-so success.

Oatmeal is a favorite Sto breakfast so he was excited they asked for it. Never mind that neither of them have ever shown any interest in it before (we've tried).

Back when I was a kid all we got to eat in the morning was rocks. And if we were lucky they might be warm rocks. And we were grateful to get that.

I have yet to see a DNotD that I cannot directly relate to (this includes "Poop Shower") but food prep for kids is not just about food. It is also about drinks too. "I want a glass of milk" *pour glass of milk* "I don't want this milk, I want it in a blue glass." *dump milk into blue glass, "I don't want that milk, I want new milk!" etc.

Mmm... ...warm rocks!

Sounds like my house in the morning ...

so far Maximilian is content with his frozen blueberries and cheerios knock-offs.

@chocolate chips: Another fun one is to melt a heaping tablespoon or two of peanut butter into the oatmeal just before you get it to the bowls. Melts right in with a few stirs and totally changes up the flavor. That plus chocolate chips = deliciousity!

Sometimes I'm glad I don't have a wife and kids.

And sometimes I cry myself to sleep because of the crushing loneliness.

Thorax@ If you have a job I can find you a wife. Get your requirements to me and I'll see what I can do.

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 9/29/2009 @ 2:56pm
Does fredo have many comely daughters of marrying age?

by L.S.Erhardt on 9/29/2009 @ 6:45pm
Thanks for the offer, Fredo. I do have a good-paying job with lots of job security, but that seems to have actually been a hindrance in the past... go figure.

But requirements, eh? Hmmm...

No kids
fiscally conservative
emotionally healthy
doesn't live more than 12.5 miles from my apartment
between 24 and 30

by NineInchNachos on 9/29/2009 @ 7:27pm
I can see Fredo filling out the mail order bride form now.

by fredo on 9/29/2009 @ 7:28pm
Would you consider asian women? My wife and her friends could probably get some photos available for you to review. These possible matches would be filipino or cambodian. This might be a good fit for you if you consider yourself kind of shy. I'm sure you could find someone who would meet your requirements but you might have to start out as a penpal. The best catches are overseas.

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 9/29/2009 @ 7:52pm
Pen pals, well I guess the pen is mightier than the sword, or something like that.

by L.S.Erhardt on 9/30/2009 @ 1:14am
Nah, I'm a total extrovert. Check out the Briggs-Meyer test. I repeatedly come up as an ENFP personality type. For anyone who knows me, it's scary how accurately ENFP describes me.

while I appreciate the efforts, I think I'll pass on overseas anything. I might join E&A one of these days... or another T-Town singles thang if I can find one. I'm confident that the right gal is out there somewhere looking for me too.

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 9/30/2009 @ 3:38am
I took a similar test, the Oscar-Meyer, and found it to be a lot of bologna.

by fredo on 9/30/2009 @ 8:22am
Thorax@ no problem, that was my inintial reaction to the idea too.

by thriceallamerican on 9/30/2009 @ 10:00am
Weirdest FT thread ever. And there's been a lot of weird ones...

by jamesstoweart on 9/30/2009 @ 1:17pm
Agreed... this thread went South very quickly... and is concurrently full of win.

Also, my art is attached... so, bonus for me.

by fredo on 9/30/2009 @ 7:31pm
Weirdest FT thread ever? Maybe, but the discussion was a predictable response to Stowe's delightful drawing which stirred up feelings about parenthood and therefore marriage.

by NineInchNachos on 9/30/2009 @ 7:35pm
I am disappointed that fredo never offered me over-seas brides in any of my tacomic comments. It is obvious who he plays favorites with.

I think this needs to be some kind of world record for stowe.

What are you? Mormon? You're already married.

by NineInchNachos on 9/30/2009 @ 7:46pm
hey, all i'm sayin is it would have been a nice gesture.

by fredo on 9/30/2009 @ 7:59pm
When I offered to help Thorax I didn't mean to imply I wouldn't offer the same help to any other similarly positioned person. Send me your requirements and I'll do the best I can. Even Crenshaw.

by L.S.Erhardt on 9/30/2009 @ 8:31pm
"Even Crenshaw"

Oh damn!

by NineInchNachos on 9/30/2009 @ 9:00pm
do you charge a finders fee? :)

fredo doctor of love

I've updated your feed tacoma icon.

by L.S.Erhardt on 9/30/2009 @ 9:10pm
That is the best thing ever since I learned how to make home-made Phở.

by fredo on 9/30/2009 @ 9:22pm
I'm no professional matchmaker and there's no finders fee, but if you choose to honor me by naming your first born Fredo I'm OK with that. Nachos you do me great honor by embellishing my icon. Thanks.

by thriceallamerican on 10/1/2009 @ 7:29am
This raises a question that's been swimming around in my mind for months. How is "fredo" properly spoken out loud? Reason would suggest "Fred O", like a name and last initial, but I personally prefer to think of it like Frito.

My wife pronounces it Fray Dough.
