Overheard

I made chicken noodle soup for dinner. Here’s how the conversation went:

Rebecca:  “Guess what, everyone! I came home over the lunch hour during a very busy day to make you homemade chicken noodle soup, because I am the best mom ever.”

Olivia:  “I don’t wike chicken noon-nul soup.”

Rebecca:  “Yes! You do!”

Ava:  “Me either Mom. Why can’t we go to Crush Sandwich for dinner?”

Rebecca:  “I think you mean Smash Burger.”

Ava:  “Yeah, that.”

Rebecca:  “Ava, you love chicken noodle soup. It’s just like Gramma Great’s!”

Ava:  “Oh yeah? THEN WHAT IS THIS GREEN STUFF?”

Rebecca:   “…celery?”

Ava:  “Gramma Great DOES NOT put celery in her soup. Also, what is this OTHER green stuff?”

Rebecca:  “Um….dill.”

Ava:  “Mom. Seriously.”

All of this aside, they both had three bowls!

    Maybe you should serve them spaghettios – a staple for our kids when they were growing up – and then the thought of chicken noodle soup would be so welcome!

    “Noon-nul” is the best pronunciation of noodle I’ve ever heard!

    That conversation sounds very familiar 🙂 Though, usually Colin tells me (as I’m making dinner), “I’m not going to try that, Mom. I won’t eat it.”
