Getting to the bottom of things

Yesterday, at 10:15 a.m., Ramona asked for lunch.

"It's too early," I chided. "We'll wait a little bit for lunch."

"But, Mommy," she said, "I really, really want lunch now."

"Well," I replied in that pragmatic, Mommy-Way, "how about a clementine?"

"No, I need lunch. Can I have lunch?"

"Why do you want lunch right now?"

"Because," she said, "I'm really eager to have cake for dessert."

I'm with you, Ramona. How could a clementine possibly suffice when you can practically taste that cake?

Ramona puts into words the thoughts of my children!

ROTFL. Ramona honey, you are my kind of girl.

Ramona, dear, cake is for BREAKFAST.
