[A few months ago, I was feeding oatmeal to Delightful Finch.]
Strong Bear: I want some! I want some! (this is his way of asking for things.)
Mom: I'm sorry, sweetie. I can't give you any because it has oats in it. It'll give you owies. (He's allergic to oats.)
Strong Bear: No, it doesn't have oats - it's yummy!
[Last night Strong Bear forgot to go potty for too long and had an accident.]
Mom [holding up a bunch of paper towels]: Come clean it up, Bear.
Bear: No mom - it has oats!
[A few hours later....Strong Bear was eating an orange...]
Beautiful Rabbit: Bear, can I have some?
Bear: No, it has oats!
