bonne maman




(sigh)
oh, and after taming
a 5-year-old's tantrum
that could easily rival any 2-year-old's,
i've slipped into the kitchen quietly
and settled into the sofa to unwind
for the evening.
some take a glass of wine,
i instead prefer creme caramel
(this evening).
that stash of french desserts
in the refrigerator
i recognize
(upon realizing there were 9 different kinds in there)
may be too large,
but how can i help myself?
there are still a hundred kinds
i have yet to try.
and now it's become a nightly ritual.

though don't worry,
the tantrums are not nightly.

I'm with you. Every tantrum deserves a dessert.
