True or False?
A) Eve has eaten waffles in the bathtub. More than once.
B) I once used vanilla ice-cream in the macaroni and cheese because I was out of milk. And butter!
C) I'm not sure why pajama bottoms are completely necessary.
Pencils down. Here are the answers. Give yourself as many points as you want for each correct answer.
A) True. If the kitchen is closed because it is clean, then it is sacred. If your child has eaten nothing but one cheerio all day and gets to bath/bedtime and announces she's hungry, she probably is. But bed and bath time are also sacred.
I am not spending an hour waiting as my daughter sits politely at the table, eating her curds and whey. No way! Then another hour in the tub and THEN bedtime? uh uh. The fixer? Serve the waffle in the bathtub! Now, not only is there no game-delay but also the jelly washes right off since she's already in the tub. Forget dining al fresco, we call this dining a la aqua! Problem solved. Eve likes hers in the red, tomato-shaped dish.
B) Also true. There's a reason the phrase goes "necessity is the MOTHER of invention". As far as that goes, I have to say it was pretty good. It's also good if you add a little to spaghetti sauce. It makes it sweeter and creamier and kids love it!
C) If you guessed true, give yourself twice as many points as you want. Recently Eve asked why she had to wear her pajama bottoms to bed. I don't know the real answer, but when she asked, I became determined they were essential. "Because what if there's a parade in the middle of the night? We don't want to miss all the fun while we put your bottoms on, right?" Eve was completely satisfied with this answer, but where I come from they have a word for that. A whopper.
It's true, I'm glad I didn't tell her there could be a fire and we would have to hurry. That would have scared her. But, think about it. If there's a fire and you and your children are away from the fire and safe, who cares about pants? But a parade? Definitely pants required.
As I said, I don't know. Where do you fall on the whole pajama bottoms issue? And what whoppers have you told?
