FULL

Full? I do not think that four letter word means what you think it means.

A conversation after lunch with the four-year-old went something like this:

Him: Can I have dessert, please?
Me: You barely finished your lunch. You said you were full.
Him: The lunch part of me is full. The dessert part of me is only up to here. (He then gestured to a point partway up his body.) If you want to fill it up, I need dessert.

Of course, I had to smile. After all, I said the same thing to my parents. I have to wonder how we learn it.

(For the record - he didn't get dessert.)
