If you chance to meet a frown............

Max: "Mom, I want a frownie."
Me: "Why Max, are you sad?"
Max "No, I want a frownie. Please I can have a frownie?"

I frown at Max.

Max: "Mom, please! Pretty please with sugar on top! I can have a frownie?"

Me: "A what?"

Max : "A frownie! A frownie! (jumping up and down) "Please-a-please-a-please-a-please, I also do need a frownie!"

Me: "OK Max, let's see you frown."
Max: "No! I also not frown! I also want a frownie!!"

Me: (singing) "If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay, quickly turn it upside down" (I pick up Max and turn him upside down) "and smile that frown away"

Max: "NO! I NOT BE UPSIDE DOWN! I BE UPSIDE UP! MAKE ME UPSIDE UP!!"
I turn him over and stand him on his feet.

Max: "I also do need a frownie."
Me: "Max, honey, I don't know what you're talking about."

Max takes my hand and leads me to the kitchen and points to these........................












"frownies?"


Which is kind of strange, because brownies always make me smile:0)

That's exactly what I thought he was talking about. You could call them fava beans, and I would know exactly what he was talking about.

I'm in tune with chocolate.

Lisa said...

Ha! Funny. I'm just like Kristina. I've always got brownies on the mind so I knew just what he was talking, but your interpretation sure makes for a sillier post!

Is it a sign that I eat way too much chocolate that I knew what he was saying? And they do make you frown, you just have to step on the scale first.
