Tonight I served watermelon for dessert....the seedless kind. Except there's always seeds.....the white kind. And sometimes you find other seeds....the black kind. I've explained to my kids that the little white seeds are soft and okay to eat. They should use a fork to pick out the black ones.
So I was only listening with half an ear while my girls discussed their watermelon and the seeds. And then I heard this from 3-year-old Rachel:
"I don't like the blacks. Only the whites are good."
As I nearly choked on my own watermelon, all I could think was, "I'm so glad we're not out in public right now."
