Something’s Fishy

posted by Momo Fali on August 29, 2011

On Saturday night, our family joined another family for dinner at a local restaurant. I got hooked on fish tacos in San Diego, so that was what I ordered. Note to self: Ohio is not San Diego and all fish tacos are not created equal.

Nevertheless, I ate my meal. My son was sitting next me and when I finished, I wiped my mouth, then discreetly leaned over and whispered, “Hey, do I have any food in my teeth?” Then I flashed him my pearly whites.

But, instead being discreet himself, my son loudly replied, “No, but your breath sure smells like fish.”

    Greatest kid ever!

    And, you are sooooooooo right! Fish tacos are not created equal.

    Ah, yes. The impish 9 year old. And a mother that doesn’t know any better yet. What a combo.

      I prefer to think that she knows better, yet continues to subject herself to his impishness to amuse and delight us!

        That was the first thing that popped into my head…that I should have known better.

    Haha! It’s posts like these that make me wonder what life will be like a year or so from now … when my 2 year is coherent and vocabularally-inclined enough to embarrass the hell out of me in public settings.

    Whew. *Wiping tears from my eyes* Now THAT’s some kiddo honesty. Mine are seven and they have it bigtime. Love it!
