ALERT: Jackspeak

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."

"Well, thanks."

"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.

  1. Kids are wonderful! We kept a notebook with remarks like this (you have a blog!) and when my kids were teenagers, I typed up the notebook and it’s a treasure!
    Hope you’re finding it easier to get off the couch. 😉
