A Snack-Time Reversal of Roles

We were having a little after-school snack today, Amelia's favorite white cheddar popcorn:

She sat there eating peacefully while I grabbed a few handfuls (seemingly unnoticed) as I puttered quickly around, emptying lunch boxes and sifting through the mail and such. She then took a pensive breath, stared at me with a mixture of concern and sternness and said, "You know, Mom, you really shouldn't eat handfuls of popcorn like that. You could choke."

Out of the mouths of babes. 


  1. Are you kidding me!!!! Thats hysterical!!!! I can totally picture her face when she said it,lol:}.These little chickies are to big for their britches!!

  2. We teach them so well, don't we? Gotta love lil' smarties!
