Say What? What’s for Dinner?

October 11, 2013 § Leave a comment

We have a fancy speaker phone option in the family car so sometimes the boys will call me on the way home from daycare at night. It’s fun to get the call at the end of a day and catch up while everyone is strapped into their seats and captive.

My only beef is Hiram’s phone manners:

“Hello?” I say.

“What’s for dinner?”

We’ve been coaching Hiram to start with the pleasantries. “How are you?” or “How was your day?” We’ve been working on it for a while but he still doesn’t seem to totally get it. Or, maybe he’s starting to get it a little. He now knows that the right first question to ask when mom answers the phone is not “What’s for dinner?”

Last night, when I answered the phone he said, “Mom? How do babies come out?”
