In Search of a Distraction

Well, I had a different post planned for today, but I accidentally posted this yesterday and had to take it down because I just felt like having three in one day was WAY too much. Handsome was home, so I got to get a couple written for those days that I may be just too busy to sit down for long. If nothing happens that I feel I need to write about from today you will be getting a very fun story tomorrow! Did I peak your interest? Here is the post for today...

Children remember the strangest things and decide to use them when you least expect it. My daughter was being rather crazy and we had attempted to get her to take a nap for over an hour. She kept coming out of her room, turning her light on, and just not cooperating. We finally decided to allow her to skip nap because it was getting so late that her lack of nap would keep her awake far beyond bedtime and the likelihood of that happening was not so great anyway. I decided to ask her to go into her room and make me a "burger sandwich" (if you recall, that is her word for cheeseburger). I asked her to make sure that she had lettuce, tomato, and ketchup on a bun for Mommy. She went to her room in a timely manner and produced part of my request from her play kitchen.

I was presented with a shiny half bun and a fake ruffled potato chip. Ever trying to keep her busy so that I could have a moment of free time, I asked her where the rest of my burger was. I didn't know what response I would get, but I figured I would try to get her to go off into her room for a bit longer. She looked at me with full confidence and said,

"Can't Momma."

I told her that I thought that she could. "You are sooo good at making food for Mommy. I know you can do it."

"Can't Momma."

"Well, why not?"

"It's closed."

She sure told me. Her kitchen was closed and there was nothing else to be said about that.

PS-- Look for a post later tonight about the cookbook. I've been cooking today...... :)
