mommy geometry



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. )

A very wise child. I myself never eat dodecahedrons.

I'm trying to think of other ovals that she might dodge. Eggs?
