Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there. I hope you have a peaceful, love-filled day. Here’s a Lucy quote to brighten (or not) your day.
Lucy: “Tell me about the chickens.” (By which she means, the slightly gory story of how a chicken goes from the farm to our table.
So I do. And I ask, “Does that make you want to eat a chicken?”
Lucy: “Yes! I want to eat a chicken.”
Me (prepping her for the *eventual* move to a farm): “Would you like it if we raised chickens and killed them and ate them?”
Lucy: “Yes! I want to kill a chicken!”
My grandmother lives on in this child. Although, I’m not sure that she butchered chickens with quite this sort of relish.
Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day!
