Max: Ooo! What’s that?
Me: It’s trail mix.
Max: I want some! Can I have some?
Me: But, you don’t like nuts.
Max: Yes, I do. I like THOSE nuts.
Me: You pick nuts out of your granola.
Max: Please, Mommy? I want a bag of trail mix, too.
Me: No, I think you’re going to pick out the chocolate chips and leave the rest.
Max: Mommy, I love cashews, and almonds, and those green nuts, and I also love cranberries. I promise I will eat it all.
Me: I don’t know… You always say you’ll eat stuff, and then you don’t.
Max: Please, Mommy?
Me: Well, what happens if you don’t?
Max: Nothing, because I will eat it ALL.
Me: Fine. *Hands over small bag of trail mix*
Max: *picks out chocolate chips*
