I made myself some butternut squash soup for dinner tonight using the baby food maker. Talk about smooth. And nummy. I waited until the kids were in bed to make it because I wanted to be able to eat in peace. Imagine my non-surprise when, just as I sat down to enjoy my meal, Big walked out of his room and announced that he was too hungry to sleep.
So, we sat at the table together and ate-- Big a banana and me my soup. He was enthralled by how effortlessly I crushed my crackers one handed above my bowl.
Big: "That's amazing. How do you do that?" (he motions a cracker crushing motion above my bowl)
Big: "It must be."
Big: "Do you think I'll be magic when I'm older?"
Then he finished his banana and I tucked him in. Sleep well, Big.
