Cause and Effect

I've been trying to teach Willie about cause and effect...with little success...but this morning we had a great "real-world" example.

Cause: The Boss refused to eat dinner last night because there were too many "meaty pieces" in her stroganoff.

Effect: The Boss ate NINE pancakes for breakfast.

I feel like we are single-handedly keeping Bisquick in business.

But more importantly, Willie is starting to get the whole cause/effect thing.

Pancake Count 08/25/11:
Kirs--3
EmJ--4
Willie and Reillee--5 each
Gus--6 (he didn't approve of dinner either....or the fact that he didn't get dessert)
Sam--9

Yikes!

Shame on you put putting too much meat in your food, we have the opposite problem.

That sound like Rory. She hardly ever eats what I cook for dinner. The only "meat" we can get her to eat are tyson chicken nuggets. Oh by the way I have an easy quick recipe for pancakes. If you would like it just let me know through facebook and I will send it to you :)
