Roly Poly Pudding...


Tonight as I was in my kitchen preparing dinner for my family, my son Lars came in and was looking at all the food laid out on the counter. Fresh green beans, onions, celery, new potatoes, bread crumbs and veggie broth. All of a sudden he bursts into this Beatrix Potter bit from a story I had read to them years ago about making a roly poly pudding, done in his best British accent. Cracking me up into hysterics and he beaming and grinning from ear to ear because he knows he has made me truly laugh. I'm amazed at the way his mind has retained this story from his baby/toddlerhood. We read those stories every spring from our complete Beatrix Potter library.

Lars:
Anna-Maria, Anna-Maria, make me a kitten dumpling roly poly pudding for my dinner. No, make it proper with breadcrumbs. Nonsense butter and dough.

Mom:
Rolling on the floor laughing.
