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