On Monday, our bellies hit “empty” while we were out running errands so we stopped to eat lunch. Alice was getting a little wiggly while waiting for her food so I reminded her of what I expect at the table.
Alice: (Hops out of her chair. Pulls chair forward. Hops back into chair. Wiggles around. Wiggles some more.)
The Mama: Alice, settle down please.
Alice: (Gives The Mama the stink eye. Hops back into chair.)
The Mama: You need to be able to sit still at lunch. You are a big girl now. You are almost five years old.
Alice: (worriedly) I don’t want to have babies!
