Me: "Lily honey, what would you like for breakfast?"
Lily: "I want warm food."
Me: "Ok, how about some oatmeal?"
Lily: "I want food that is warm, but not hot. And no breakfast food."
Me: "Ummmm. How about some left over pasta?"
Lily: "I want food that is warm, but not hot and not soft. And not crunchy."
Me: "I have no idea what you want. There's the cereal."
Lily starts to cry.
Lily: "But (insert pathetic sob here) I want warm food and I hate that cereal!"
Me: "Fine. Go to the refrigerator and find something you want to eat."
Lily: "I am not eating any Gogurts."
Me: "Fine. Just. Find. Something. Now."
Lily: "Do we have any cheeseburgers?"
Me: "NO!!!! We do not have cheeseburgers!"
I sit down with my bowl of cereal.
Lily wanders around whimpering at the unfairness of her life for a few minutes. There is some stomping and growling.
Lily: "Can I have some of your cereal?"
I give her my cereal and go eat left-over birthday cake.
Lily: "Can we snuggle?"
We snuggle. Then she steals my cake.
Lily: "This is the best breakfast ever!"
