Yesterday, this girl wanted cheese. As I was busy in the kitchen, I asked hubby to cut some of the cheese for her. After cutting the cheese, hubby handed her the cheese. But, the girl started showing her frustration. Hubby turned to me, looking clueless. Then, I asked hubby to return the small piece of cheese back into the resealable cheese packaging. Next, I asked him to show her the cheese packaging and let her pick the little piece of cheese from it. She happily picked the cheese and went away (because that is our routine when she requests for cheese every day)!

That has left hubby in the kitchen with a poker face. LOL!
