Breakfast Debate

This morning as I prepared breakfast for my three little ones, and changed Baby T's diaper, and washed my hands so many times the skin nearly fell off, my cooking skills were called into question by CB.

CB: I will have toast. (five seconds later) Where is my toast? Is it ready yet?

Me: It's still in the toaster.

CB: In the toaster? CB doesn't want it in the toaster. (Her sudden switch to the third person when referring to herself is as baffling as it is annoying and warrants a subsequent post at a later time.)

Me: But you wanted toast?!

CB: Yes, but not in the TOASTER.

I'd better go pull out the Joy of Cooking and check the recipe again.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I hope you enjoy the caramel apple bars. Your caramel apples look delicious! Our 6 yr old also likes *toast* not made in the toaster--his idea of toast is bread warmed up in the microwave. :)

Cracking me up! I think we can have an arranged marriage with my 4 yr. old! They can baffle each other for eternity:)

Knowing my 4 year old, I probably ought to accept that arrangement on her behalf right now...

My daughter has issues with toast in the toaster, too. Sometimes she wants the toast toasted, other times not. Must be the age!
