First Post of the New Year, Last Funny Story of the Old

Earlier tonight:

Buttercup: Yay!! New Year’s at last!! Yay!!  Mommy… it is New Year’s tomorrow, right?
Me: Yes dear.  Tonight is New Year’s Eve, and tomorrow is New Year’s Day.  Tomorrow is the first day of 2008.
Buttercup: I can’t wait!!
Me: (suspicious) Um, can’t wait for what?  What exactly are you expecting to happen on New Year’s Day?
Buttercup: We get toast!!
Me: Toast?
Buttercup: New Year’s Toast! Yum!!!

This set GeekDaddy and I into gales of laughter before we explained to my darling Buttercup that the ‘clinking’ thing we do with our glasses is toasting.  Apparently, my child, who hates bread and has never eaten toast to save her soul was under the impression that there was some sort of “magical, new, and different” New Year’s Toast that she would be partaking of tomorrow.

I really hated to let her down.

  1. That is both precious and disturbing at the same time.

    Hates bread?!?


    Chain her to the rack and force her to eat delicious Crispy Sourdoughs, decadent Deli Ryes, pernicious Pumpernickels till she puffs with their yeasty goodness…

    I soooo love ma bread…

    Mmmmm New Years Toast w/ Buttercup…

    Sounds good to me.

    Happy New Year to you and yours!

  2. Since day one when presented with it, bread has been ceremoniously dropped on the floor.

    You couldn’t get her to eat it if you coated it in chocolate… she’d just lick the chocolate off.

    Ah well. She eats edamame and soy burgers and broccoli… who am I to complain?

  3. Some how i had flashes of a really funny Rocky Horror skit! Lets do the Time warp again…
    Giggle, your buttercup is to sweet!

  4. very interesting.
