Over dinner (spaghetti tacos yes) Gray announced that when he grows up, he is going to have three jobs.
- "I'm going to work at my work."
NWIparent site doesn't work for everyone and that bums me out when I blog and no one can see it so I'll cross-post below.
Gray, coming up with the idea from a TV show most likely, has been requesting spaghetti tacos for dinner every night for at least the past week or more. After the first few nights I realized that he was serious. That spaghetti tacos were such a thing.
But every night I had made other plans for dinner or didn’t have the ingredients (he said it had to have a hard shell) and I was putting off going to the store for as long as possible.
Yesterday he asked again and was visibly offended that I STILL HADN’T BOUGHT THE STUFF TO MAKE SPAGHETTI TACOS. So you know what I did today? I bought the stuff. When he got home from school I told him right away and to my chagrin he was like “huh, okay can I go ride my bike now?”
I served it up on a Batman plate (to Gray only- the other kids were like nothankyou) and I watched him take a big crunchy bite. He worked on it for a bit and I asked if he liked it.
“Not really” and he dumped the spaghetti out from the taco and ate it like normal people eat spaghetti, with a fork.
Do you make weird things for your kids? I think the strangest thing we’ve ever done besides this was when I made breakfast for dinner. It BLEW THEIR MINDS.
P.S. I realize that ninjas do not do Kung Fu because I googled it and apparently ninjas train in ninjutsu but that doesn't make for a very fun title. I will be sure to inform Gray of the correct information.
