For his birthday, Nathaniel got to pick the menu. Strawberry shortcake topped his list, followed by chopped veggies (he particularly wanted snap peas) and hummus. I’m wondering if our kids should always plan our meals: two equally-sized bowls of veggies and dessert sounds great!
“So, Nathaniel, what is so great about turning five?”
“You get harder worksheets.”
Really, kiddo? “Anything else?”
“You’re closer to six.”
Well, okay. “Anything else?”
“You get pencils. From school.”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is five in a nutshell, from its newest member.
