Belle: Mommy, I don’t like ovals. I won’t eat ovals.
Me: Honey, I wouldn’t say that I generally put geometric forms on the menu.
Belle: Mommy, those ovals. I won’t eat ovals. (pointing to the pizza.)
Me: Oh, olives. Okay pick them off. Though, really, olives are not oval. I think they are more like circles.
Husband (who had been eating pizza and ignoring the situation): They are very oval. And not very good.
Me: Alright, alright, no one eats ovals around here. Fine.
(And yes, I do actually talk like a school marm with my young ones; I think it is funny. )
