A New Corn on the Cob Pro

Post to Twitter .

Picture this.  Memorial weekend.  I know, I know.  This post is WAY late!  But stick with me.  It’s Memorial weekend.  And we just BBQ’d spare ribs, veggie-k-bobs and corn on the cob with Grandma Ellie and Grandpa Paul.

Ryan was ecstatic about having corn on cob.  After all, it is his favorite (as he stated many times that day).  And he was our resident corn on the cob eating pro.

Owen had no idea what corn on the cob was.  He had never had it in the true sense of on the cob.  Last year he was still too young to eat it off the cob.  You know, lack of teeth at 9 months old. But this year was a completely different story. Ryan showed him how to eat it and he went to town.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new corn on the cob pro in our house.  I’d like to introduce you to Owen Henry.  Age 21 months.

And there you have it folks.  Two corn on the cob eating pros in our house.  I can’t wait until we can actually eat the corn out of our own garden!

Do you have one of your own?  How old was your child when he/she starting eating corn directly off the cob?

  1. I love to watch little ones eat corn on the cob. It is so funny and cute to watch.

  2. I have to say, garden fresh corn is so good, how could you not love it?
    He’s darling, bet you could just eat him!

  3. I’m pretty big corn on the cob fan myself, except when it gets all up in my teeth. Those veggie kabobs look delicious! Great pics!

  4. Those pics are so cute!! My two have been asking for corn too at the stores…they enjoy peeling the husks. When I make frozen corn (kernels) they don’t care for it very much for some reason. 😛

  5. I don’t know what it is about corn on the cob (besides it being a vehicle for salt & butter, lol) but my lil peanut loves it too, always has, and her cousins too. Maybe b/c of the independence factor of holding & eating it themselves – cuz its always better on the cob!!! Cute photos!!

  6. jeaner, they are so flippin’ sweet! Yup, levi is a corn on the cob hound in a major way. Arlo hasn’t had the real stuff yet, the cornman or ‘farm accident bob’ won’t start selling his sweet & tasty corn for a few weeks. Can’t hardly wait! Those veggie-bobs look tasty, too:)

I would LOVE to hear from you!
