damn I'm stupid.

Even after this afternoon's trauma, the following actually happened: at dinner, I casually complemented hubby on the evening's meal -- FISH.

Needless to say there was some hasty explaining to do. Doh!

Nice one, Cheryl! ;)

It was heartbreaking to hear her little voice saying, "Why are you eating FISH???" but I couldn't answer because I would have laughed. Luckily, Hubby caught it and waded in with the explanation.

At another point, she just sat there, staring at her meal (she had mac and cheese -- no fish on her plate) and started saying "Fishy is dead. Fishy is DEAD. FISHY is DEAD!" getting louder each time until I realized what she was saying and had to reassure her that it was OK to be upset... and so on. Sigh. Parenthood is hard!
