"Momma I wanna snack"
"What do you want?"
"I wanna snack pwease."
So I open the box of Brownies and petit fours and turtles....well what's left of them.
"No, pick three?"
"No, I said pick one"
"Meredith, pick one or I will put them away"
After a few seconds and a lot of deliberations, she chooses one of the two remaining chocolate petit fours.
"I wan dis one"
I then go about wiping down the dust from the counters for the 875th time this week. After enough time to consume a chocolate petit four....
"Oh no.....I dwopped it!!! Bwownie ate it!!!! OH NO!!!!" no tears though, it was kind of a weird, very calm reaction from my daughter who supposedly dropped her cake and watched the dog eat it. Normally that is followed by tears and uncontrollable sobs.
"Did you drop it?"
"Yeah I get a-nudder one?" reaching for the last chocolate petit four
"Sure get another one"
This time I watch as she eats all the chocolaty goodness and makes a bigger mess all over her hands and face. As she finishes the last bite....
"Oh no Momma, I think I dropped it again."
"You think you dropped it?"
"Yes, I think I dropped it and Bwownie ate it"
"Oh yeah" looking at her with those eyes....we have had a lot of discussions about Pinocchio and fibs lately
"Well......I think I ate it, yeah I think so momma"
"Yeah me too" And a big mischeavious grin crosses her face.
