Today we had a beautiful day together as a family. The weather was perfect and everyone behaved themselves. Here is how an actual conversation went with Avery. I am not changing anything. These are the things she actually said.
Avery: (holds up lemonade that had been left in car all night) Oh, here is that lemonade from last night.
Avery: Did you know that this lemonade is whole grain?
Me: Reeallly?! I didn't know lemonade could be whole grain.
Avery: Yes, so I am going to drink it because whole grain things are good.
Me: Lemonade that was in the car all night will not be good, but go ahead and try it if you want.
Avery: (tastes lemonade) BLECH. That was really bad, like really, really bad.
Me: Told you.
Avery: That tasted worse than a beaver's butt crack.
