Happy Heritage: Food Adventures
Perhaps we've been watching too much Food Network tv. Our girls have begun reenacting their own competitions, running to complete a task after one of them calls out, "And your time...starts...NOW!"
Both girls seem convinced that "manila" is a mispronunciation of "vanilla". So they pronounce the word "correctly". This has led to new descriptions of other items, such as "blueberry" paper.
Preparing to serve some refried beans from a can, I overheard my 6yr describe them in a satisfied voice as "fresh from the store".
6yr: "I get the most because I'm the oldest."
4yr: "Someday when I'm older like you then I'll get the most."
6yr: "You'll never be the oldest because I will always be older."
4yr (undaunted): "Someday when you die then I'll get the most because then I'll be the oldest."
