Gigi: These graham crackers are stale.
Cassie: That happens.
Gigi: The graham crackers should never be stale.
Cassie: Sometimes the crackers are stale.
Gigi: You should NOT let the graham crackers get stale.
Cassie: Just eat them anyway.
Gigi: What? Did you say to eat the stale graham cracker?
Gigi: I will NOT eat the stale graham cracker!
Cassie: Fine I’ll eat it.
Gigi: (silently watching me eat the cracker) Isn’t it terrible, Mommy?
Cassie: No. It’s not really that stale.
Gigi: It is. It’s VERY stale.
Cassie: It’s not.
Gigi: It is. The first thing when Daddy gets home, I’m going to tell him that you tried to make me eat the stale graham crackers.
Cassie: That’s tattling.
Gigi: I have to tell him when it’s about bad food.
Cassie: Gigi, it won’t make you sick. It’s just a cracker.
Gigi: But it’s awful and you were a bad Mommy.
Cassie: (sighing) Fine. Throw those crackers out. It’s time to go up for a bath.
Gigi: I can’t throw them out. That will waste them.
Cassie: But I thought you said they were stale.
Gigi: You’ll eat the stale ones and I’ll have the good ones.
Cassie: (sighing) Nice, Gigi.
Gigi: That’s how we’ll eat the graham crackers, Mommy, since you always let them get stale and I’m never eating the stale ones.
Cassie: I DON’T always let the crackers get stale…it was just this one time.
Chorus from the Great Room: You ALWAYS let the crackers get stale.
(Oh. My. God.)
