Anthony has a habit of noting each and every item that finds its way into our grocery cart, and if he’s not sure what I’ve pulled from a shelf or out of a cooler, he asks what it is. Today, the unknowns included shallots and a small carton of heavy cream.
Apparently, Ant quickly absorbed these new vocabulary words because, as he scanned the groceries and I bagged, he called out to me, “It’s not heavy, Mama.”
I turned to see him holding the carton of heavy cream over his head with one hand.
“See,” he said. “It’s light. I can lift it.”
