This particular mom-ism happened yesterday afternoon.

(Chi-chi comes racing to the door to greet me.)

Chi-chi: Gyas! I came up with a something wonderful you can serve at your tea party!

Me: Really? What is it?

(Chi-chi hurries into the kitchen and begins preparing something. She keeps her back turned to me so I can’t see what she’s doing.)

Chi-chi: (Turning around) Ta-da!

Me: Chips and guacamole?

Chi-chi: Yeah!

Me:…It’s not a Mexican tea party, Chi-chi.
