Me: What should we have for dinner?
P: Crunchy carrots, cheese stick, and apple. [Runs into the other room. Runs back.] Cheese stick is our protein for tonight.
On behalf of all parents who like dinner that can be sliced and plated in three minutes, thank you, Peanut.
(He is now galloping through the house, chanting “I gallop, I gallop, I gallop, I fall down.” And does. Good heavens, if someone told me there’s be a funny, easy, self-entertaining phase with this child, even if it only lasts a day, I would have been a lot less stressed the past four years. Talk about calm before the storm, eh?)
