If you can work breakfast in whenever (on the weekends or holiday for us), it is a different scenario. During the week, we have to eat something before school or work and have no opportunity for a food break until lunch, 4 or so hours later. I'm not a big fan of sweet breakfasts, prefer savory far more, but it can be difficult to please everyone.

My youngest saw a carousel today when we were at the zoo and insisted we take a ride on "Wild Irish Rose!"  Now, he's 3, he's never really been on a full carousel before and so never one that played "Wild Irish Rose."  I have an mp3 of the song being played on a Wurlitzer like the sort you'd hear from a carousel but again, he's not familiar with those sorts of carousels or the music they tend to play if they're the older sort.

And being 3, he can't read but even if he could there was nothing about Wild Irish Rose written anywhere near it.  So I was tickled that he called the carousel that.

And then we got on and he sat on a gazelle with me standing next to him as he's got one hand on the pole and the other arm wrapped around my neck as he's saying "It's okay, Mommy, I got you! You okay? Don't worry, I got you."

I was at the movies a few weeks ago and overheard this exchange between a father and his young daughter  (I'm guessing she was 4 or 5).

Frozen was the topic.  The little girl was rattling off different things she wanted and the dad told her she had enough Frozen stuff.  She stopped, hands on hips, and told him in the most matter of fact voice, "Daddy, you just don't understand. I'm a girl and I need accessories ".

He tried really hard to hold it together,  but he started laughing, belly laughing, tears rolling down his face laughing. She just stood there for a couple of seconds,  shook her head, muttered ,"Parents are so weird".  When the dad pulled it together,  the little girl looked at him and said, "Daddy, I bet sister would love a Frozen bed set for her birthday".

Tonight at work (I work at a movie theater), a little girl was being really loud and bouncy (in a happy, non - annoying way), and her dad asked her, "Why are you always like this?"

Her big brother piped up, "Because she has a boo - boo!" I laughed til I nearly cried.

Not my kids, just some other kids on a field trip, but funny.

Tour guide at the Decatur House today, talking about how Stephen Decatur died in a duel: "This was a terrible way that they used to resolve conflict. It didn't actually resolve anything, just got a lot of people killed. Can any of you suggest any other ways that they could have tried to resolve their differences?"
