My Kids

they grow up so fast

At the breakfast table this morning:

Alex is sitting in his seat wearing nothing but his spiderman pull-up.

He has requested yogurt for breakfast.

He has recently discovered the kind of yogurt in a tube, that you squeeze into your mouth to eat.

This is what he would like.

I scramble eggs for Bill and Julia and bring them to the table.

I bring Alex his tube of yogurt while he sits there, uncharacteristically patient…a little skinny wiggling blond guy with a superhero undergarment.

I peel the plastic where the little arrow is at one end of the tube.

And Alex reaches for it, saying:

"Mommy, I want to eat it like a man."
