Calling his bluff

This morning at breakfast, I was emptying my water jug from yesterday. It had slices of lemon and orange in it, and I decided to eat the oranges. Cameron immediately began oogling over the lemons.

"Oh I love those. Those are so good Mommy. Those are sooooooo good."

I knew--just knew--he wouldn't eat them if I gave them to him. I gave him the quizzical eye.

"You love these, huh Cam? You love them?"

"Yep. I love them Mommy. I would eat them all."

So, without hesitation, I handed one over to him.

He looked at me, wide-eyed. I think he must have thought I was going to tell him that he couldn't have one....he just stared at the lemon, then back at me, then back at the lemon.

"Go ahead, Cameron. You love them, right?"

"Well," he said, scoffing and rolling his eyes, "not in the morning."
