Smells like Sunset

28 Oct

He gets these ideas

19 Oct 051

Peter is getting to be a bit stubborn lately. He gets these ideas in his head and nothing we say can dissuade him. Yesterday the kids went to the basement to look for some Kraft Dinner and they didn’t find any so he dragged a boxed waffle maker upstairs and declared he was having waffles for lunch.

M: Peter – I’m sorry but I’m not making waffles for lunch.

P: I’ll make them myself! How do you get this out?! (He struggles to open the box and finally succeeds)

P: *examines the waffle maker* Mom! how do you get the waffles in?
