Watch Your Mouth Young Man

I guess you just have to chalk this one up to one of those “kids say the darnedest things” moments. Given his expression I know that N said this in the most innocent of ways. He clearly didn’t have a clue.

I am preparing dinner. N comes into the kitchen and asks what we’re having. I tell him we’re having fish, rice, and his favorite combo of veggies (broccoli, cauliflower & carrots).

N says:
Why can’t we ever have some meat at dinner?

I say:
Fish is meat.

N says:
No. Why can’t we have man meat for dinner?

At that point I had to turn my back on him just to hide the expression that I’m sure was on my face.

Oh yes, things are going to be awkward around MY house for the next 2 wks while my MIL is visiting...
Z has joined me on our tiptoing-towards-vegetarianism-trend of eating only fish & chicken [I know they both have FACES but I'm working on it, m'kay?] - & of course when I say "our" I mean Z & myself; DH certainly is still eating his fill of beef & pork! Bought lots of eggs, cheese, & veggies on our last-minute grocery run last night - wish me strength babe!

HA! Love it, I would have had to turn around too.

Val - Wishing you all the strength in the world. Dealing with MILs is tough baby. Hang in there!

Fusion - It was all I could do not to laugh, and I can't tell you the how many totally inappropriate comebacks ran through my head.
