When I was growing up, oftentimes my mom would say, "I could just eat you with a spoon!"
(I was young. You take everything so literally when you're young.)
This always made me think of ice cream sundaes.  That's what I'D want to eat with a spoon!

But now I completely understand why she said those words.
I call this one "Sprinkles".
She gets frustrated with me when I call her that.
"My name's Wynnie.  Call me Wynnie."
And then I tell her,
"I can't help it.  When I look at your cute little face with your sprinkles of freckles, well, I could just eat you up!"
She giggles.
