backseat conversation

Scene:  Driving home.

VIOLET:  Mom, when is dinner?

ME:  Dinner was two hours ago and you didn’t eat it.  That’s it.

V:  But Mom!  I’m hungry!  I want dinner!

M:  I guess you missed your chance to eat dinner.  I’m not making you another one.

V (furiously):  If you don’t make me something to eat, I’m going to EAT YOU!!

GRAHAM (panicked):  No!!! Don’t eat Mommy!

V (still furious):  Graham, if you don’t let me eat Mommy, I’m going to EAT YOU TOO!

G (still panicked):  Nooo!  Don’t eat me!

V (soothing):  Graham, I won’t eat you if you let me eat Mommy.  Okay?

G: NOO!!!

V: Okay?

G:  No.

V: Okay?

G: NO!

Car and argument continue down the road. Dinner is not mentioned again.DSC_4798

    Thank God for bloggity-blog! Otherwise all of this precious wisdom would be lost to the cosmos. I sooo love these children and the parents they are blessed to have!

    “Elmo rocks” indeed. You’ve got some special little ones there… we too have the “i’m not eating dinner/ now I’m hungry” discussions. Although they’ve never resorted to cannibalism…yet.
