How to Panic Your Children

June 14, 2006 @ 8:39 am | Filed under: ,

And here I thought I was just being efficient. I decided to get a jump on dinner so I mixed up a marinade for the chicken. Now I’m listening to an intense and fear-tinged conversation:

Rose: “But we didn’t have lunch!”

Beanie: “I know that.”

Rose: “But Mommy’s making dinner! That means we missed lunch!”

Beanie (gasps): “What???”

    LOL! That almost sounds like something that could really happen here! If we are eating on the fly, one of the kids could be out playing and totally miss a meal! Thanks for sharing a good laugh!

    I think my dc would be just as perplexed if I ever started dinner before lunchtime. Before 5pm even!
