We Don’t Speak The Same Language

They say that communication is key to a health relationship.  I’m not sure exactly who “they” are, but I’m just sayin’ that they know some stuff.  And “they” seem to be on to something because I sometimes think that Hudson and I no longer speak the same language.  Case in point…

“This mac n’ cheese is too warmed down now.”
“It’s too cold?”
“No, too warmed down.”
“It’s too hot?”
“No, you’re not listening.  It’s too unhot.”

Ah.  Too unhot.  Yes, me not listening is definitely the problem here.  Where is the Rosetta Stone to help me communicate with my preschooler?

While we’re at it, can we also throw in some sort of temperature guide as well?  I’m imagining something is the form of a meat thermometer but that would instead help me find that perfect temperature and stop the maddening loop of cooking food only to “warm it down” in the freezer.

And in case you’re wondering, the perfect temperature for food is subtepid.  Yes, it’s a word.  If you were listening you would know that already.

  1. Ahhh... if only Rosetta Stone had a Toddler language class. I'd be all over that.
