I remember when B was very young, about 2 1/2 or so, he spelled his first word. We were riding home from church one Sunday night discussing what to have for supper. A little voice from the backseat piped in P.I.Z.Z.A.

Scot and I looked at each other in could he know how to spell pizza??? We all started laughing. It was just so funny to hear our little man say something like that out of the blue! He had heard what we were talking about and he knew he wanted pizza for supper!

I was convinced that Scot had taught him how to spell the word pizza...and for good reason too. For those of you who know Scot, know just how much he LOVES pizza! I thought it must be some sort of conspiracy. He often tells the kids to ask for pizza and I thought he had taken it to a whole new level..teaching my toddler how to spell it too.

They always want pizza and I am not so crazy about it. I like it if it has everything on it, but even then only occassionally. Scot, on the other hand, never tires of it. He could eat it every day!

Since that night a few years ago, when we talk about having pizza we just can't help but spell it! It brings back good memories and lots of laughter.

Last night, we had a family fun night and what did we have for supper? You guessed it...homemade P.I.Z.Z.A?

The kiddo's (yes, the big one included) love pepperoni's. I think more ended up in their mouths than on the pizza's.

Pee-pa. That is what E said when she was young. We sometimes still say that. You can't blame it all on me that the kids love pizza. After all, it is a healthy food for them. This never works with Amanda, but I try to explain to her that pizza is the most nutritious because it contains each of the four major food groups - breads (pizza dough), meat (pepperoni, sausage, etc.), fruits and vegetables (pizza sauce - tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, etc.), dairy (cheese). To any other pizza fan out there, you are welcome to use my "nutritious" facts and claim them as your own. Good luck!
