You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

We’ve had another round of illness here, a particularly nasty stomach bug. After a few days of recovery and no trips to the grocery store, I improvised dinner for the kids with a chicken breast and some french fries from the freezer. The big boy comes into the kitchen while I’m cooking and says, “I thought we didn’t have any chicken nuggets.” I said that I didn’t have them but I made them from scratch. “I’ll eat them even if they’re from scratch because I like chicken nuggets,” he says to me. I shout, “From scratch is better!” as he runs from the kitchen.

After dinner he says, “Mom, where’s the bucket?”

Oh no, I thought. Not again. “Not feeling good?” I ask.

“Yeah, my stomach feels funny. It must be that scratch you put in the chicken nuggets.”

After a short vocabulary lesson, the bucket was retired, in case anyone was wondering if I poisoned my child.
