One of our Christmas traditions is to have an enormous bowl of M&M’s out and about from the moment we wake up until we pass out in a candy coated shell by night. Depending on how many people are around for Christmas the bowl is normally polished off by mid afternoon.
However this year there were only four of us and two of the three of us don’t really fit comfortably in our pants leading us to go easy on the bowl. We had lots of leftovers.
Lunch on December 26th consisted of leftovers (turkey!). When the moosh requested something else Cody said “Kid, we are only having leftovers for lunch.”
I then watched as a lightbulb popped up in her head as she muttered “The M&M’s are leftover, therefore M&M’s will be my lunch.” She then marched across the room, got a handful and sat back at the table.
When Cody finally noticed and started to say something I explained her logic in having “leftovers” for lunch.
The lawyer in him was appalled and proud at the very same time.
