Tonight’s before dinner conversation:
Me: Girls, do you want chicken nuggets or the (leftover) chicken from the oven?
Anna Grace: chicken nuggets
Me (heaving a big sigh): Abby, what kind of chicken? Chicken nuggets or chicken from the oven?
Me (now a tad exasperated): I gave you a choice. Chicken nuggets or chicken from the oven?
Abby: regular chicken
Me (said with a growl): What is regular chicken? Your choice is chicken nuggets or chicken from the oven.
Abby: chicken nuggets
Please excuse me now while I go beat my head against the wall.
Disclaimer: we don’t typically have choices regarding the dinner menu but when daddy is out of town and mommy is tired, all bets are off.
