One for the record

Setting: It's 7:50 AM. Mom is sitting at the kitchen table, knitting a baby sock while talking to Grandpa on the phone. Two daughters are sitting about, eating breakfast, with designs on getting ready for school.

Youngest daughter looks to mom, with the eyes that say, "I have a question."

Mom says to Grandpa, "Wait Dad, Squid has something to say." The telephone conversation pauses.

Youngest daughter says, "Mom can I have a cookie?"

Mom replies, "No, it's not even 8 o'clock. This is not Disney."

"Okay, I'll have an apple."

New household definition: Disney: a totally fun place where cookies are for breakfast, ice cream is the 9 AM snack, and frozen lemonades wash down a pretzel lunch.
