Look Alikes

On Saturday, Luisa and I took the kids to Noodles and Company for dinner. Miguel chose a table towards the back and, shortly after we sat down, two children and their mother sat at the table nearest us. At one point, I heard the boy ask his mother, "Why does the mom and the dad look alike?" She said something to him but she must have been unconvincing because he persisted loudly, "Those kids' mom and dad look the same! Why do they look alike!" Miguel looked up from his pesto and answered clearly and loudly, "That's because the kids don't have a mom and a dad. They have two moms." His tone implied lots of eye-rolling and maybe, just maybe, the word "stupid".

I think eye-rolling and the insinuation of stupidity should be fostered in this case.

As if I could fall in love with Miguel any further...

Where could he have ever picked up the exasperated eye-roll?

He probably picked it up from Luisa...

I would never do such a thing.
