In this scene, when we went out to celebrate a new chapter in our lives, we wound up getting the privilege of dining with royalty!
(Scene: We’re going out to eat to celebrate Hubby’s new job. K has been wearing a crown all day, because she’s “the Tween of the Tastle.”)
Hostess: It’ll just be a few minutes.
Hubby: Thanks. Come on guys, let’s sit over here.
Me: This way, Bubby.
(Baby A toddles over to the chairs and pulls himself up.)
K: We’ll sit up here, and then we’ll eat?
Me: Yup! Our table will be ready soon.
K: And we’ll have noodles?
Me: We can have noodles if you want.
Baby A: (Sees a clump of waitresses chatting and smiling at him.) Hi!
(He works the charm.)
Waitress: Isn’t he so cute? (To K) And you – is it your birthday, or are you just a princess today?
K: I’m just wearing a crown because I’m a princess today.
Hostess: Oh, that’s fun.
K: Actually, I’m the tween. Of the tastle. And the world.
**She doesn’t ask for much. Just world domination.**
