They had an Easter party at Andrea’s day care yesterday, and one of the parents brought in Easter baskets for all the children.

Turns out my worries may have been groundless. As we were talking, she pointed to the stickers on my hand and cheerfully exclaimed, “Chicken nuggets!”
She’s a good little omnivore.
