Me: What do you want to drink son? Son: Beer
Me: No, really. What do you want to drink? Son: Wine
Me: Okay, we have milk, chocolate milk, (and I continue to list all age-appropriate beverages)
Son: I WANT BEER!
Me: Beer is an adult beverage. You are not having beer.
Start of a temper tantrum- cue the foot stomp.
Son: I want the beer, with the bubbles? You know? That we put on ice cream?
Cue the light bulb and mommy's deep sigh of relief, that pre-mature alcoholism has not set in with my four year old baby boy.
Me: OOOOOOhhhh, you want Root BEER!
Son: Ye-es!!!! ( hands out and open all innocent as if I thought you'd never figure it out)
Cheers to all!
May this be the first of many misunderstandings that end in laughter.
