This is how you know that your children may have been listening to a little too much of L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables etc.): They start insulting each other by saying things like….. “Wesley has a beau.” Haha (And then coming to ask me if I know what a beau is.)
Also, a piece of friendly advice for other parents of young children. If you haven’t done it already, just go ahead and ban any kind of cheese snacks on car trips. I don’t know what it is about cheese exactly, but it always seems to come back up when we’re driving. Mom sent us home with a pack of string cheese today, and it was very much appreciated. We all love it – but it didn’t sit so well with Avery. And I was totally expecting it. I’d guess that about 85% of the car-sickness that we’ve cleaned up over the years started out with cheese.
After we cleaned up today, I laid down the law and said that we’re not eating any more cheese in the car until everyone is at least 8 years old.
That will probably be like most of the laws I lay down – it’ll last about ¼ of the time decreed…. But maybe that will be enough…
