Sitting down to a grumpily made, makeshift dinner for two around 7 p.m., consisting of egg noodles with peas and parmesan, green beans, and toasted wheat bagels with butter.
Jack: "Mommy, this dinner is delicious."
Me: "I thought it was kind of a weird combination. But thanks, hon."
"It’s so delicious. AND it’s so tasty, too."
"It’s so, so tasty. It’s like, it’s like . . . it’s like Christmas dinner!"
Sometimes three-year olds sure do know how to turn a frown upside down.
