Ultimate Insult

Near the end of a long and difficult evening Clara looked up at me with a face full of frustration, pulled herself up tall, swelled up her chest and said:

“Well, Dad makes better pancakes than you!”

Please note this is NOT the look Clara was giving me this evening!

Which is true.

Once we were done with our “pancake discussion” I laughed my way downstairs and made a batch of this (http://ourladyofsecondhelpings.com/2012/02/02/super-bowl-snacks-sugar-and-spice-popcorn/) Sugar and Spice popcorn.

I’m planning on saving her some.

Any girl who can make me laugh (though she certainly didn’t intend to) after such an evening is worthy of a popcorn treat tomorrow.

Who needs pancakes?

Besides, when Clara is “discussing” things with her Dad she might need to know that her Mom makes way better popcorn than he does!

    I need to learn some humor from you when it comes to the mean things kids say. I am having a tough time with Henry right now and need to blame it on him being a smart and independent 4 yr old that only wants to do things HIS way.

      I think I have a six year old like that… her insults are less funny and didn’t make it onto the blog. I think next time they say something that is actually mean I’ll just pretend it’s because my pancakes are terrible- hopefully it’ll help! 🙂

    I think my mother would have battered me…. Or suggested I went and tided my bedroom.

      “tided my bedroom” – I’m pretty sure I heard a different version of that growing up as well! At least it had to do with my room and waiting until my Dad got home… 🙂

  3. Now I know what my wife feels when my son said, ” I want to eat the mango curry dad made,” when his mom asked him one day what food he wants her to cook for him. And I rarely cook. Great post!

      Mango curry? Yum! I say if your going to cook rarely cook great when you do. My Dad cooked very little while we were growing up but the homemade hash-browns he made were the best – still are!
