Mannering the Table

I recently posted the following status update on Facebook:

My kids think they’re on Fear Factor. Tonight’s episode: bell peppers. #OhTheDinnerDrama

They have only a few vegetables they will willingly eat. However, I made chicken noodle soup and they couldn’t get enough of it. I didn’t bother to point out to them that it contained (gasp) celery, (gasp) carrots and (gasp) onions, which are classified as vegetables. As he downed his last drop of soup, Bode let out a nice, satisfied burp, which I took as a compliment.

Jamie thought otherwise.

Bode: “If I burp, that means I’m full. Or finished.”

Jamie: “Or rude.”

I’ll take it.
