I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… and again… and again. Children are easily impressed. They are Masters of The Finer Things. My oldest is a huge broccoli fan. Raw with ranch dip, if you please. Last week as I was cleaning out the fridge I found a lonely broccoli stalk. Not enough for a meal or even a hearty snack. I called to her. “Look what I found. Do you want it?” You’d have thought I’d offered the girl a hundred dollar bill coated in chocolate!
And my little guy? He requested a real plate for breakfast this morning (as opposed to his usual Bob The Builder plasticware). The dishwasher was full and the only real plates I had left were our big dinner plates. Why not? I scooped up some apple french toast casserole and handed him the plate. Grinning at his now huge eyes, I said “How’s that?”
“I get a big, big plate? Just like Daddy! You the best, Mom!” Well now, big plates all around!
Big joys in the small stuff. I’d say that’s a Finer Thing! What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up and let us know! Be sure to leave a link back here so that others can find us and celebrate, too.
