It was a beautiful day and so I went directly to the park after picking the dear children up. Dinner would be late, but we have had only a handful of pretty park days so far and it gets dark so early that it was worth the horrific late-dinner sacrifice.
The kids played and had a blast - even though we could only be there for about 20 minutes or so. Rebekah met a new friend and her little friend's dad even took the time to get our number so we could arrange a future meeting
As they were working on getting buckled in, their thoughts left mourning the park and concentrated on their grumbling tummies'. It didn't take long for the I-Wants to begin filling the car. I soothed them with the promise of a small snack and dinner shortly after once we were home. "What are we having for dinner Mom?" Peter asked thoughtfully.
"We are having fajitas!" I replied as I snapped him into his seat.
Without missing a beat Peter replied "Can we go out to eat-us?"
It took me off guard but completely cracked me up that I erupted into a laughing fit. And now we have a new word in the household - eat-us!
And isn't that clever? To rhyme "eat" and "fajitas" like that? Of course it is - because my children are geniuses!
