Don't feed her that!

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Corn in mup.
Corn in mup who!
Alright I just have to say it. Malaia loves to eat. One of her favourite things to eat is corn. What I can't seem to figure out is why would a parent even feed a child corn. I know there is supposed to be some sort of nutritional value to corn. But my thought is if the corn doesn't digest in any way shape or form, why would you feed your child something that comes out exactly as it goes in.
In fact I think maybe next time I decide to cook corn, I'll just take it from the pot and put it directly into the diaper. Skip a step if you will.
Sure she gets joy out of eating all those tiny little yellow kernels. The fella who's changing those diapers though is not a big fan of turd kernels. It looks kind of like regular corn but with a beer battered coating. Yup I'm afraid it brings me no joy.
So here it is, an official corn boycott in this household. I choose to change diapers with a little less sustenance. A lot less grits. And ones that don't look and feel like a bag of microwave popcorn
