Future Husband of Mary Lee

The boy likes nothing better than a donut these days. He'd eat a half-dozen at one sitting, if we let him. (And sometimes I want to just to keep him quiet and occupied).

Case in point, after reading 'Green Eggs and Ham' last night, I asked him if he liked green eggs and ham.

John M: 'Nooooo!'.

Me: Would you like them on a train?

John M: Noooooooo!

Me: Would you like them in the rain?

John M: Noooooooooo!

Me: In a boat?

Him: Nooooooo!

Me: With a goat?

Him: Noooooo!

Me: I know, at the zoo (he loves the zoo and we had been the day before).

Him: Noooooooo!

Me: No??

Him: No.

Me: Would you like them with a donut?

Him: YEAH!

Case closed.

Well John M. would have liked it here in my office this morning!

Adam likes donuts too, but I can't get him to sit down and read "Green Eggs and Ham" with me...he rather look at his tractor books instead!

Me tooooooo... if I was on death row I would want a chocolate iced Krispy Kreme as one of my items. The boy is wise beyond his years.

And the ABC thing was precious. Faith wants to watch it all but we have GOT to go to bed. It's 11PM!!

Well, yeah! 'Cause everything's better with a doughnut.

Or a cupcake.
Those are good, too...
