My day

Actual snippet from my day today: I’m sitting at the table with Small One, who is eating oatmeal, which she calls “olameal”. She picks up her sister’s ring and asks, “What’s this?”

”It’s your sister’s ring,” I say, “put it back down.”

She drops it into her oatmeal.

”No!” I say, “Don’t drop it in your oatmeal!”

”Please?!? Please can I drop it in my olameal?”


”Why I can’t drop it in my olameal?” (crying)

”Because it’s yucky!” I say, retrieving it to go rinse it off.

Behind me, I hear a small and sulky voice. “I need MORE olameal.”

(Which is clearly true- that bowl somehow got RING all over it.)
