Bristel: I want eggs
Me: Bri-bee I already made noodles
Bristel: But I want eggs
Toby: noodles have more vitamins
Toby: yes, like vitamin B & E & D...(blah blah blah went the lengthy lecture about how butter & parmesan laden egg noodles are better for your body than real eggs)
Me: (silently battling my conscience...do I tell my son that mommy was too tired to make healthy food for our slumber party...that slumber parties are about junk food...or do I let him continue to blissfully believe the noddles will turn him into Nick Markakis someday?)
Bristel: (applies hand to forehead quite dramatically)
Me: (concerned by hand on forehead) do you have a headache, Bri?
Bristel: (quite exasperated) I DON'T CARE about vitamins Toby!
Everybody...including daddy from his post at the computer: (cracked up - finding it hysterical that a two year could think like that!)
It was really really nice - that slumber party! Hmmm...maybe it'll become a regular thing? And then someday...when you're big enough...and sleeping through the night enough...you can join us. And giggle at your silly sister too!
And maybe next time we'll blow up the air-mattress too. The couch was kinda crowded with Toby's long athlete legs & Bri-bee's night time rolly-pollies!
Okay...and maybe next time I'll actually make healthy snacks to munch. Maybe!
