Benjamin and Nikki
Yestersday I took Benjamin, Alexander, and their friend Nikki to the paint store (more about that later) and the Museum of Arts and Sciences. On the way home, this was the conversation:
B: You're going to stay for dinner, right Nikki???
Me: Excuse me??
B: Nikki can stay for dinner, right?
Me: What are you cooking??
B: Okay, we'll cook. We'll make macaroni and cheese.
Me: And what meat?
Me: And what vegetable?
B: Oh. What do we have?
Me: String beans and brussels sprouts.
B: String beans.
So we stopped at Publix on the way home to pick up the kielbasa, and the three of them made dinner. Not quite what I had planned, but hey, I didn't have to make it!
