Want whipped cream with that?

I know I've put on a few pounds this winter but am trying to deny it. However, Hannah became my reality test the other night as I was putting her to bed: "Babci, you're like a sweet plump strawberry."

Granted, I reminded her of a character in one of her storybooks, an "old woman" with large hips and a kind face.

Mary Poppins on Geritol.

Still... it's a nice thing to be compared to!

Better a sweet plump strawberry than many other things she might have said!

That child will surely be the next generation of writers in this family!

My 4-year-old British niece once said to her 95-year-old great-grandmother: "Nan... you're very, very, very, very, very old." Pause.
"You're going to die soon."

So enjoy being a plump strawberry.
