Missing Him

"Mom, what language do they speak where Dad is on his business trip?"

"In England they speak English."

"But they have an accent there."

"Yep, it's an English accent."

"But we speak English with an English accent."

"No, we speak English with an American accent."

"Okay, but... he's coming home soon, right?"

"Bob, Dad said that you get to pick what kind of cake we make for his birthday."

"Okay. If we did chocolate I wouldn't want carrots in it."

"Got it."

The Days

"Mom, how long has summer been so far?"

"About a week."

"It feels faster. I want it to be slow."

"That would be nice."

"I'm pretty sure it would feel slower if we went out for ice cream everyday."

Bob at the Vegan Restaurant: A Review

"Mom! This is horrible! It's too spicy! This doesn't look like cheese. Is this supposed to be cheese? It's like a pretend. Who would eat here? This seems like a grown up restaurant... Yes, I see the other kids here but I don't know why they are eating this. It's super terrible and yes I tried it! I tried it with my whole mouth! These aren't really mashed potatoes. Where is the salt? Dad? How am I supposed to eat this without salt?!"
