Kids are so good at stating the obvious. Tonight, at dinner-
Lilly: I don't like this. It's too spicy.
Me: You have it for dinner all the time, because we have leftovers for lunch all the time.
Lilly: But it's too spicy.
Me: What usually happens when you have it for dinner?
Lilly: Well mommy tells me to, and I throw a tantrum, and Daddy and Patrick feed the dog.
(Feeding the dog, by the way, is one of the incentives for eating a nice dinner.)
I love how matter-of-fact she was about the common progress of events.
