Last night before dinner, The Family went for a run. Well, my husband and I ran and Alice sat back and snacked. Close enough.
When Alice got ready to start her snack, she realized she had gum in her mouth. “Here, Mom. Take it,” she demanded. Like any good mother, I complied… then I popped it into my mouth.
What? Was I supposed to toss it in one of my neighbors’ yards? On the sidewalk? I thought not.
Alice was in no way surprised by my solution. In fact, she seemed delighted to share her joy.
“Isn’t it yummy?” she asked. “It sweets up my mouth!”
