Kade ate baby octopuses.
Did that get your attention? At one of our neighborhood grocery stores (the King Soopers on County Line and Holly–I didn’t see them at their other locations), were whole baby octopuses in the seafood case. For Kade, an irresistible sight to behold. I believe they were pickled and they were bright red. He always wanted one. I always got him one.
“I’ll have one baby octopus, please.”
“Mom, can I eat it right now, pleeeease?”
I never had a desire to try one, myself; no thank you. I love sushi but pushed any octopus pieces that came across our table Kade’s direction. It’s a chewy, rubbery, texture thing. That Kade really enjoyed, evidently.

What a good mother you are! How many mom’s would have bought an octopus for their kid to eat? Bravo for you not stifling Kade’s adventurous spirit!
I’ve never seen octopus packaged in the store but I have eaten calamari in restaurants. I don’t like sushi at all! It freaks me out to eat raw fish….

What a cute and funny boy.
I love fried calamari. That’s as close as it gets.
Now there’s a unique and fun memory! Most kids would have asked for a cookie.
