My Little Octopus Eater: How Soon They Forget

Izzy's mind has been immersed in all things oceanic. From the rolling waves to the creatures within, Izzy's month-long summer camp has piqued his interest in all things aquatic.

Our trip to the beach yesterday and the sight of a basketball-sized jelly fish has only added to his great interest.

So I shouldn't have been surprised to hear, "Mama, can we actually eat a real octopus?" Little did he realize how he used to yearn for that odd-looking creature.

"You have actually eaten octopus many times. In fact it used to be one of your favorite dishes"I don't think he believed me. I wonder what will happen next time he encounters it.
