“Is that mine?” He asked wide eyed.

“Yeah,” I said. “I haven’t made you a smorgasbord for ages, have I?”

“Can I have it in front of the tele please?” He asked with hands in praying position & bottom lip bulging. “Go on, it is Sunday.”

How could I resist. 😉

“Go on then, get your table ready.”

We went out for lunch today & so as none of us were particularly hungry, it seemed the perfect excuse for an icky-picky dinner.

When he was younger this would have been his favourite dinner. He liked the idea of being able to make choices about what he ate & in what order he ate it.

Once while staying with my Mum for the weekend she asked;

“What would you like for dinner Zephy?”

He thought carefully before answering.

“Errm, a smorgasbord please.”

Mum was a bit confused as what he was talking about but he took her to the kitchen a talked her through the makings of the perfect buffet selection.

Everyone loves a precocious child, right? 😉

Back to the tele room, I returned to find that he had already devoured the tuna mayonnaise with caper pinchos, tomatoes & even the leaves of coriander.

“How you getting on there?” I asked chuckling to myself. “You enjoying that are you?”

“Yeah.” He replied smiling. 🙂

I’ve done my job.
