It took me a minute to realize what she had done but when I did, I also realized it was brilliant.
Last week, Caroline was at a sleepover so Rob and I let Katherine choose where we would go for dinner. She always chooses a place where pancakes are an option, so a diner it was. We were sitting outside at a local place that has only recently added outdoor seating. Local Ridgewood people should note that The Daily Treat has outdoor seating now and it really does make the Greek salad taste even better.
So I looked over and saw Katherine enjoying a piece of bread with butter- her most favorite food after pancakes. And she had put butter on both sides of the bread. When I asked her about it, she said, “I always do. More butter.”
Really, when she said it, I felt quite silly. Why hadn’t I thought of it years before? In fact, I think it should become a way of life. Metaphorically of course but still…
Butter on both sides of the bread and more of the good stuff- just cause.
