eating another rainbow

January 23rd, 2009

It is just the kids, tonight. No daddy around. So Will and I decided we’d make rainbows for dinner. As we were discussing what foods we wanted to eat for each color, Will and I got into a heated debate about where crab fits into the rainbow – is it pink? Is it orange (per Will)? The conversation ended with Will, indignant, exclaiming, “Mom! You don’t even *know* what a rainbow looks like! I know, but you don’t!” Well, hmph!

We were able to resume the conversation at the grocery store where we selected red apples, rasberries, orange cheese, carrots, banana, avocado, celery, edamame, blueberries and black berries. There wasn’t enough celery for my plate, but who am I to argue with kids bullying for it?

At 4, he’s mastered the tone; promise me that at 16 the argument is just as comical.
