A couple weeks ago, I took my kids out for ice cream.

As we sat in the crowded creamery eating our treats, my son said hi to just about everyone who came through the entrance.

To see what unusual eating habit he unveiled,


A few minutes after he finished the last drop of his junior scoop of mint chip, my son turned to the napkin I had in my hand and spit out about twenty chocolate chips.

Unbeknown to me he spent the last half an hour, swallowing the ice cream and separating the frozen morsels in his mouth.

While it was sort of amazing that my tot could accomplish such a task, it was also a lil unsettling.

He's done the same thing a couple other times with tiny bits of chopped salad and quiche.

Is my child part chipmunk, or does your youngster also sort and store food?
