Avery’s evaluation of her special treat of sweet coffee after lunch yesterday: “Delightable!”

And later in the day, when we had a bottle of sparkling grape juice with our supper, Avery’s opinion was: ” It shouldn’t be called sparkling… It doesn’t sparkle. It should be called “tickle.”

I got a container of applesauce out of the fridge and put it on the table for supper last night. Wesley was the first one to take a bite of it. Here was his reaction:

Wesley: This tastes like sparkling cider! It tickles my tongue!

Roger: Do you like that?

Wesley: Yeah. Mom, you can make this again!

(Judah wasn’t interested in eating fermenting applesauce, but after Wesley’s glowing recommendation, both of the girls helped themselves generously and enjoyed the experience.)

This morning:

Judah: Dad, Mommy made tomato soup and grilled cheese for breakfast!

Roger: Your mother has unique needs.

    “Your mother has unique needs.” That strikes me as hilarious. I think I am going to laughing about it all during hydrology.
