If you don't come right away or whine or fuss too much then you lose your opportunity to have a sandwich and are left to eat the dinner or go to bed hungry. Lucas recently went to bed pretty hungry but most of the time the kids will come and at least try dinner.
One night Alex came and sat down but Lucas took one look at the dinner (a pasta with cream cheese and chicken dish) and said ewww and declared he was not going to eat it.
"But Lucas it's good, come eat it" Alex sweetly told her brother. "It's good, it tastes like cake!"
"It doesn't taste like cake!" Lucas said sceptically.
"Yes" I agreed, "it doesn't taste like cake, but it is chicken and pasta and cream cheese, all foods you like so come eat."
"No, it is good it really tastes like cake!" Alex declared again. She then paused, a sly look began filling her eyes. "Everything tastes like cake. Except cake tastes like chicken nuggets."
And she laughed and laughed.
And so did we.
*******************************Are you getting your Ten Things to Smile About Lists ready? I hope so. Thursday will be the day to write your post and link up. You can even write your post a few days sooner or later and just link up on Thursday if you would like.
For those of you who may be new, every month I look back at the month and find Ten Things that made me Smile. Whether it be something good that happened, something funny, or just even a pretty sunset. I then write up a list to help me remember the good that happens in every month. I often include pictures in my list but you don't have to. All you have to do is write you list, include the button in your post and then link up. An easy post and so fun to read.
