I say, "What are you doing, Atticus?"
He answers, "I am counting paper -- Do we have 800 pieces of paper?"
"I need to make 800 copies of something."
"Really? Why 800?"
"So I can hand them out to everyone at school."
" Oh. Copies of what?"
"Well, this recipe."
So I look at the recipe. Hm. "Maybe we should try it first."
"Good idea, Mom."
So we made it substituting Sprite for "Sparks" (because I didn't have pop rocks) and raisins for "Grapes" (because I didn't have any grapes that week).
|It was a hit -- mostly because it had pop in it which our kids are seldom allowed. But it was an enthusiastic response and Atticus was delighted. Somehow he was okay not making 800 copies after this. I was thankful.|
