My third child is 34 years old

“Don’t give her pecans,”  I say to my husband, as Madeleine waits at his feet.

“She likes them,” Michael says.

“She can easily choke.  There are so many other things she can have.  A child her age doesn’t need to have nuts.”

“K’i have nuts, Dad?” she asks, sweetly.

“Mommy says, no nuts.  Sorry Madeleine,”

“Don’t blame Mommy,”  I shout from the bathroom.

“Who am I supposed to blame?”

“How about the American College of Pediatrics?”

Madeleine begins to do that enunciation thing she does when she’s annoyed, “I.  Want.  Nuts.”

“See?  She wants them,” Michael insists.

“Offer her something else.”

“She’s following me around.”

“If you can’t dupe a 2 year-old , we have a real problem.”
