spaghetti


Dustin went out of town Monday and Tuesday, leaving me to fend for myself against these crazy children. I did everything I could to make sure we had fun, making pizza and popsicles for lunch, watching movies, playing games. Annabelle, however, was quick to point out all the things that I did differently from Daddy.

Annabelle was giving me attitude about me not giving her a snack before dinner.
"Daddy ALWAYS lets us have snacks before dinner."

I told her that I gave her a popsicle when she woke up from her nap. She informed me that a popsicle was a "special treat", but a snack was like raisins and kix or crackers and cheese.

I told her, "No. You will not get a snack, I'm making dinner right now."

She said, "FINE! I don't want ANY dinner!"

I told her that was okay, there would be more for me and Julian. Then I reached for the spaghetti out of the cabinet.

She hovered around the kitchen a few more minutes and then politely asked,
"Mama, what's for dinner?"

I said, "Juju and Mama are having spaghetti."

She said, "Oh. I think I will have some dinner tonight."

I asked, "Bella? I thought you didn't want ANY?"

She shrugged and said, "i didn't know you were going to make my FAVORITE dinner."
