I Just Can't Win

Elanor: "What are we having for supper?"

Me: "I'm not sure yet. I need to double-check my ingredients."

Elanor: "No! I don't like them! I want a supper without ingredients!"

Later that same evening...

William: "Mommy, do we have any apples?"

Me: "No, but we have bananas."

William: "I don't want bananas! I want fruit!"

Me: "Bananas are fruit."

William: "No, they're not. Only apples are fruit."

On the up side, Collin called Sunday night's supper, Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes and Apples, "everything great about pork in a single dish."  At least someone around here appreciates my cooking.


  1. LOL!!! Poor banana.

    I can relate. Every night my kids ask me what I'm making. They whine from the time I tell them throughout dinner no matter what it is. Tired.of.it.
