Lunch: A Conversation With Luke

At lunchtime….

  • Luke: I’m finished.
  • Me: You only ate one piece of pizza.
  • Luke: But it was a big piece.
  • Me: I know, but you usually eat at least 2 or 3.
  • Luke: I’m full.
  • Me: Are you sure? I really think you should eat one more.
  • Luke: I’m sure.
  • Me: And you won’t be asking for more food in an hour?
  • Luke: No.
  • Me: (glances at clock and makes mental note of the time)
  • [1 hour and 4 minutes later]
  • Luke: Mommy, I’m hungry, can I have a snack?
