I fondly remember my Dad singing to me when I was a child, “Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, so I’m gonna go eat worms. Big fat juicy ones, little tiny squirmy ones, I’m gonna go eat worms!” This song was so disgusting to me at that time in my life! Back then, I couldn’t even imagine eating a worm!
Well, one fine day, our dear Auntie Suzie introduced Milo to the book “How to Eat Fried Worms” by Thomas Rockwell. After reading a few chapters, surprising things began to happen!
Milo was inspired to eat a worm…he just had to try one! He thought and he thought and he thought and he thought on this idea for days before he finally came to me while we were working in the greenhouse and said, “Mama, I’m gonna to eat a worm! Will you go get some lemon, salt and pepper?” I knew he was serious, so I went to the house, grabbed the ingredients and a camera and headed back up to the greenhouse.
Milo was ready…he had his worm all picked out. One not too big and not too small. The perfect size. At that moment, Kiah’s interest was peeked. She wanted to try one too!
Here we go!
