Chocolate milk and smoothies
We make our smoothie together.
"I want you to share mine."
I've already had my own.
"But I have two straws."
Okay. I'll take a sip. Sip. It's good. -- We smile.
"I want cereal"
We don't have milk.
"Apple cider in my cereal!"
That's gross. (I think it, don't say it.)
You can't have cider in your cereal. It's not a good mix.
Open fridge. Aha!
I have a better idea!
Chocolate milk in your cereal!
"I never had this before!" -- She really does *bold* [okay, emphasize] the word this. It's how she speaks sometimes and I love it.
I know. It's okay. It will taste good. (Of course it will. The cereal is sugary aka frosted mini wheats. My favorite!)
"Mmmn. Yum." Sounds just like those.
I'll have some, too.
"With your cereal?"
With my granola. Splash. Big smile. It IS good. Mmmn.
Before I blink her cereal is done. Smoothie by the wayside, needing to be cupped up and put in the fridge. A small bonding moment passes as she runs out the back door to chase the dogs.
Chocolate milk in our cereal. Not one of my finest mommy moments, but one I will remember with hopes she does, too.
