beerMy husband works at a university, and one night the whole family went to the campus dining hall for dinner. As my husband was filling up the kids’ sippy cups with water from the self-serve drink dispenser, my daughter looked up and asked “Daddy, which one is for beer?”

girl with hands on hipsWhile out for dinner, I noticed this cute baby boy at the table next to us and was watching him and smiling to myself. All of a sudden my daughter got up from her seat and walked over to me. She said, “Stop paying attention to that little baby and start paying attention to yours.”

tooth under pillowMy daughter was avoiding eating her oranges during dinner, so I told her the vitamins in them will help make sure her teeth won’t fall out. She replied, “I’m not going to eat them then so the tooth fairy can come and give me money!”

quote image about making dinner


After a busy day, I finally got to the kitchen to prepare dinner. When I proudly exclaimed, “I am making progress in here,” my daughter replied, “That doesn’t sound very yummy.”
