Raines is off from school today. In celebration, I made whole-grain caramel apple oven pancakes. In my usual (haphazard) way.
Raines, taking a bite, makes a face: “Too much salt, Mum!”
Me: “Really? Oh no! Well…you know me and salt.”
R: “Yup. I do.” (Pause) “It drives me nuts.”
Aaaand THAT’s what I get for telling him his Hot Wheels were driving me nuts the other day. Sigh.
It’s like he’s 4 going on 14 sometimes. Why? Why so fast, R? Slow down, please. Your mum wants to be queen of your world for a few more years at least.
