Heard from my kids…
- On Saturday, while shopping at Costco with just Audrey in tow, I commented, “Oooh. A ten pound bag of red potatoes for five bucks. That’s not a bad price, and Daddy really likes red potatoes.” Audrey piped up, “I like red potatoes, too!” This, from the girl who has frequently proclaimed, matter-of-factly, “I don’t like food!” Whenever she has potatoes on her plate, she leaves them untouched. I quizzed her for further information. She responded, “I like red potatoes because they’re PINK!” Ah… that explains things. She appreciates their aesthetics, just not their taste. Or texture. Or something.
- This morning, I was holding Fiala on my hip, and my 12yo son Ethan was talking and singing silly stuff at her to make her laugh. Then, as a string of spit stretched from her bottom lip, he said in the same sing-song voice, “Baby drool is very viscous!!” 😆 I laughed so hard. I don’t know of any other 12yo who has “viscous” as part of his working vocabulary.
