Onions, Yummy Onions?


Contrary to popular belief, I do cook.

Sometimes.

Occasionally.

Last night I was slicing up an onion for the curry chicken. Joseph was being my helper. But when he saw that pearly white round thing he just couldn't resist.
"Mommy, that's so yummy! I want some!"
I tried to tell him he wouldn't like it, but he can be rather stubborn at times (hmm, I have no idea where he got THAT trait from. I'm dumbfounded, honestly!) so he just kept insisting.
"No, its not yucky, its yummy!!"
Finding a pretty little onion circle, he picked it up and popped it into his mouth.
It took him all of 1.5 seconds to realize just what kind of nastiness he had put into his mouth. His face crumbled from its euphoric state into complete disgust. Quickly spitting it out he declared, "That's yucky!"
Why don't they just listen to me? Haven't they figured it out yet that mommy knows all? That she is the supreme example of intellect and wisdom here on earth?


I am forgoing copyright on this post for use as an analogy in your next Sunday School lesson.

No need to thank me.

Really.

I love your posts! They are all written so well that I'm sad when it ends. It feels like I'm just starting a good book but it's only one page!
