Actual dinner time conversation this afternoon.
Sam: Mommy, there's a party in my tummy, right?
(I think this comes from Yo Gabba Gabba -- a very weird children's TV program on NickJr.)
Me: That's right Sam! And they need food so eat your dinner.
(The I put a piece of broccoli on the fork.)
Sam: The broccoli doesn't want to go to the party Mommy.
Me: Well it has to, eat up.
(What is it with all the "Why's?")
Me: Because the broccoli was invited and then he said he'd come. If you say you're going to come, you have to come. Otherwise it's just rude.
(He eats his broccoli.)
Josh: But Mom, the broccoli is the only thing on my plate that's going to the party. The turkey and the noodles are sick and can't go.
Me: Just eat.
