Secret


So it's Theme Thursday over at Clan Donaldson, and this week's theme is Secret. This is a favorite shot of mine -- a blurry pile of lima beans, neatly gathered under someone's chair. The exchange that followed was even more memorable.

Me: Why didn't you just say, "Mom, I don't really like lima beans"?

Young son, clearly baffled by my question: Well, that would be bad manners.

Clearly, that would be bad manners! Such a sweet kid, he is. :-) (Psst - my girls pick the lima beans out to eat first. Next time, just pass them over and no one will be the wiser!)

So hilarious! One time one of sons put all of his peas under his plate, like we would never find it there!

I think the real secret is What Kind of Person Actually LIKES Lima Beans?

I agree with Cari! No lima beans in Chez Chatfield, ever. Because the Momma doesn't like them!
