Long-time readers of this blog will recall that The Boy likes butter. One day several years ago, when The Boy was a young toddler, The Boy's Mother was dropping off him at daycare. The Boy was being particularly clingy and weepy that day making it hard for his mother to leave him. One of the caregivers picked him up and explained: "your mommy needs to go to work, so she can earn money to buy food for you to eat."
The Boy sniffled and then replied, asking, "like butter?"
