Tonight we were scrounging for something to cook, so we ended up having breakfast for dinner. We scored major Parent Brownie Points with this move.
Sam, while eating pankcakes: “I’m the luckiest kid in the universe!”
Lydia, doubtfully: “Why?”
Sam: “I had a regular dinner and a breakfast dinner!*”
Lydia: “Well, I had breakfast and a bowl of cereal.”
Me: “It’s not a competition, guys.”
Sam: “Yeah. And I won!”
Steven: “You heard your mother. Besides, I would win anyway.”
Sam: “Dad! It’s not a competition!”
*At first, Sam didn’t want breakfast, so he had a hot dog. Then the call of a pankcake pulled him over to the dark side.
