shrewd

“Ohhhh, Mommy, can I get some gummy worms?”

“No, sweetie, you have a whole basketful of Easter candy.”

“Oh, but Mommy, I like gummy worms so I can pretend that I’m a robin.”

Oh. Precious, but somehow, shrewd. She knows how to get me.

    Have you read her “How to Eat Fried Worms” yet?? It was one of my favorite books when I was in 3rd grade. It’s a classic.
