"Aren't you a little short to be a Stormtrooper?"

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)

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.


  1. Too funny. Your little guy sounds like a hoot!

  2. Thanks Jennifer. We have a lot of fun.
