Which eggnog were YOU drinking?!

Our family does not drink (religious prohibition), so while my 8yo son Wolf knows what alcohol is, he's not familiar with the difference between, say, a glass of wine after dinner and getting thoroughly drunk.
Enter the eggnog:

On Christmas Eve we joined most of the town for the annual party. It runs all afternoon with lots of food and chatting, and is a family-friendly event. We got there on the early side, and the hostess was just finishing up making the eggnog, so we helped her set it out in two huge bowls on separate tables--one batch with booze in it and one without. I made sure to let Wolf know which bowl he should get his eggnog from, and throughout the afternoon we periodically informed newcomers of which bowl was which. At one point, my sweet innocent son explained to someone "this is the plain eggnog, and that one is for alcoholics."

So funny! Were you at all embarrassed?

Riley sometimes points at people with cigarettes in their mouths and says, "That's a bad decision!" I just smile that kids-are-funny-aren't-they smile, because, really, he is right...

Cynthia said...

Funny! That kid is so smart.

Wolf is awesome, although, really. That could be dangerous because one might have thought that he was trying to help alcohols avoid the boos...

Kate said...
