Cookies: A Conversation With Luke

As we enter the kitchen after dinner at Panera, he spots a fortune cookie on the counter....

L: Can I have this fortune cookie?
Me: No, you had a cookie at dinner.
L: But I didn't have a fortune cookie.
Me (more firmly): You already had a cookie at dinner.
L: But this is super crunchy! It's not even a cookie.
Me: IT HAS COOKIE IN THE NAME! It's printed right on the package!
L: But
Me. NO!
(Please tell me he's going to be a lawyer and that all this arguing is just practice for a stellar career....)

Currently feeling: completely exasperated (and sensing more in my future)

Throwing: A Conversation With Luke

After picking up L from daycare....

DH: Tell Mommy what you were doing.
L: Writing sentences that say "I will not throw things in the classroom."
Me: What were you throwing?
L: A beanbag.
Me: Did the teacher tell you to stop and you didn't?
L: No.
Me: Did you know you weren't supposed to throw beanbags inside?
L: I wasn't throwing!
Me: Did a beanbag travel some distance by leaving your hands and ending up in someone else's hands while touching nothing but air?
L (slightly smiling but sheepish): Yes.
Me: That would be throwing.

Currently feeling: displeased

Lunch: A Conversation With Luke

At lunchtime....

Luke: I'm finished.
Me: You only ate one piece of pizza.
Luke: But it was a big piece.
Me: I know, but you usually eat at least 2 or 3.
Luke: I'm full.
Me: Are you sure? I really think you should eat one more.
Luke: I'm sure.
Me: And you won't be asking for more food in an hour?
Luke: No.
Me: (glances at clock and makes mental note of the time)
[1 hour and 4 minutes later]
Luke: Mommy, I'm hungry, can I have a snack?

Currently feeling:   really?!
