Country-Fried Mama

A Yankee “mutha” raising kids in the deep, deep, DEEP South

A simple question

Posted by CountryFriedMama on Mar-27-2009

On Fridays, Miss D. gets hot lunch at school.  I always ask her about the menu during our drive home, but I never find out what she ate.  Her aversion techniques are mama-proof.

Today’s transcript:

CFM: Hi, Miss D.  Did you have a good day?

Miss D.: Yes.

CFM: What did you have for lunch today?

Miss D.: Robbie had vanilla.

CFM: Vanilla what?

Miss D.: Robbie likes the vanilla ones.

CFM:  Um, okay.  What did YOU have?

Miss D.:  You know what?  I’m keeping my panties dry.

CFM: That’s great Miss D.  I am so proud of you.  What did you eat for lunch at school today?

Miss D.:  Miss Amy took my picture today.

CFM: Oh, yeah?  Did she take it while you were eating lunch?

Miss D.: No.

CFM: Did you have macaroni and cheese today?

Miss D.: Miss Robyn wasn’t there today.

CFM: Oh, that’s too bad.  Did you have quesadillas today?

Miss. D.: We didn’t go outside.  Miss Toby said it was too wet.

CFM: Well, she was right.  Did you have pizza today?

Miss D.: What are we going to do tomorrow?

CFM: I haven’t thought about that, yet, sweet girl.  Are you hungry?  Did you eat?

Miss. D.: I want to play before naptime.

CFM: Okay.  Would you like a snack before naptime?

Miss D.: No.  I’m full.

Full of what?  I have no idea.

    I’d say she was full of the poop that leaked out at naptime before she sat on her pillow!! Crap is right :)

    KathyB! : Hahahaha.

  4. ymK Said,

    I dread the time when we would have to ask them about boys. You would not let it go either, would you? I don’t know if I should feel sorry for you or her lol.

    […] A Simple Question posted at Country-Fried Mama. You’ll probably only get full appreciation out of this if you have a preschool-aged child in your home – but even if you don’t – it’ll make you smile. […]

  8. sunnymom Said,

    This sounds like a conversation with Tooters about what she learned that day. I ask and this is what I get:

    I don’t know just stuff guess what some boy did at school on recess!!

    I guess they are practicing for the teen years when they need to keep stuff hidden.
