On the drive home after a looooong day in the city today:
Me (pensively): Skyler said “chocolate” today.
Lokes (dazed): Huh?
Me: She said “chocolate” when I gave her chocolate. Usually she says “shlocklate”, remember?
Me: And the other day she said “watermelon.”
Lokes nods, smiling a little sadly.
Me: Right? She used to say “waterlemon”.
Lokes: No, we’re not having another kid so you can hear “shlocklate” again.
