Man In Training

This picture has absolutely nothing to do with my story. I just finished it and I think it's awfully cute, don't you?

I'm looking after the boy who lives across the street today. He's six years old and quite the little charmer. My girls adore him and he's pretty fun to have around. Now, it's time to make lunch.

He wants these Mickey Mouse pizzas that he knows we usually have on hand. The girls want chicken nuggets. Since I can pop them both in the toaster oven at the same time, everyone wins today. He carries the pizza in from the freezer and puts it, box and all, in the microwave. He then looks over at 12YO and grins, almost as if he knew that was the wrong way.

Without missing a beat, 12YO exclaims, "Mom.....he is such a guy! He knows that's not how you make a pizza!"

The 'Battle of the Sexes' starts younger and younger, doesn't it?
