The moment every mother dreams of....but NOT!

We were discussing dinner plans for the evening, and Caroline was very happy when I said I was making one of her favorite dinners - roast beef with gravy. I said that we were going to have french fries (necessary for dipping in the gravy!) and green beans. Caroline said "can I have extra green beans instead of fries?" While I tried to figure out which group of pod people had overtaken her, I complimented her on good food choices, gave myself a pat on the back for good parenting, and was generally proud of all of us.

Until she said "your fries are okay, but I like the ones from McDonalds better!"
