Our Children

Ever have a moment when you are perfectly sure your child is your child - down to her preferences?  A recent conversation illustrated this for me.

Gwenna (sitting at the kitchen table): Mom, I'm hungry.  Can I please have a banana?
Kelly (cooking bacon): That was very polite but it's almost dinner time so, no.
G: Mom, I love you.
K: I love you too, Gwenna.
G: Mom, I really want some bacon.
K: *audible sigh as Meredith screams* What are you yelping about, Mer?
G: Oh, she just really wants a banana.

Wow, talk about one track mind.  ... And anything to get what she wants!
