Scene: Sitting at the table, eating an apple with Mason and Cooper.
Mason: Mommy, I want to go out to dinner with you tonight.
Me: Sorry, sweetie, but this is a grown-up dinner.
Jeremy interjects right as Mason starts pouting: Mason, but we’re going to have tons of fun while she’s gone!
A smile starts to emerge on Mason’s face.
Jeremy continues: I thought we could watch the Tinkerbell movie AND eat dinner in the living room. And then, maybe we could make popcorn.
Mason’s eyes almost pop out of her head; she is so excited. She puts her apple down to pump her fists and say, “Yes!”
Mason: Daddy, I have an idea. How about movie popcorn ‘slash’ party?!
Did my daughter just use ‘slash’ in a sentence? Where did that come from? And how did she learn to use it properly? I was impressed. (And jealous of the movie popcorn/party filled evening)
