Saturday we are leaving my niece's soccer game and going to meet my parents at the local pizza joint for lunch. The Seven year old says "So Mom, what's for Dinner tonight"
I feel the frustration rise in me. This kid is always asking about his meals, He always wants to eat.
Me: We are on our way to lunch and you are asking about dinner? I don't really know. (Deep, calming Breath) Are you asking becasue you want to know or are you asking to have something to talk about?
7YO: I'm asking to have something to talk about.
