And there is a process he has to eating his biggle. First he must remove the cream cheese by either using his fingers and then licking, or if he is particularly hungry, just plain licking. Then he must dig "channels" in his bagel to get at the soft and now slimy bread.
Usually this is followed by biting and eating the entire hollowed out biggle. However, yesterday while I was upstairs getting some things done, Austin had other plans for his biggle.
I am not sure whether his half eaten bagel was supposed to be a satellite dish, car top carrier, decoration for a bagel delivery truck, invasion of a UFO or some other creative idea from the mind of a two year old. But, I can tell you that Austin certainly knew the exact purpose it.
I came downstairs to see him thoroughly and proudly enjoying his creation with sound effects and all. This went on for quite awhile and I think part of him was wondering why he was getting away with "playing" with his food. Though I probably should have stopped him to keep him from thinking that it was okay to do that with any food, I couldn't help letting him have his fun.
