Obvious

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.

  1. Haha! Adorable. So when she has the leftovers for lunch, does she refuse to eat it then as well?

    1. Not usually, though today she made a comment again about it being spicy (though not until her next-to-last bite). Who knows, I'm sure I make it differently than daddy.
