Yesterday I was on the way home from picking up Cameron from school. As has become common practice for us, we began talking about the things he did in school that day. Who did you play with on the playground? Did you read a story at circle time? What story? Did you take your nap? Did you get in trouble?
Then came an innocent sounding question: What did you have for lunch?
This is actually a common question even if I was the one who packed his lunch. As it turns out, I didn’t pack it that day. While his very strong preference for lunch over the past two years has been PB&J, I knew that Beth had picked up some Lunchables and wondered how the whole cracker-goodness-meal worked out.
So… What did you have for lunch?
“I cut the cheese, Daddy. And I put it on the crapper.”
He corrected his mis-speak right away, but how do you let that just go away? You don’t. You post it on the web for all to see. Enjoy!
