Today I made the mistake of asking the boys what they wanted for lunch. While I like to give them choices I should have phrased it slightly differently. Maybe "would you like ______ or ____?" but no I said what do you want for lunch.
Dylan asked for carrots and dip
Xander wanted cucumber
They both wanted crackers
Ty wanted cheese
And everybody wanted an apple
What ever happened to a soup and sandwich?
So I compromised and made life easy on myself....they got it all and it was self serve!
It worked well because 15 minutes later the cutting board was empty and the bellies were full :)
