Mama enticing picky child to eat toast. Adlee loves butter: butter is the bait.
“How about jelly on your toast? Want syrup?”
(Ah, Mom is about to spring the bait.)
“I know what you want; you want butter on your toast!”
Smiling Adlee replies, “I want my butter with nothing on it.”
Remembering my little niece, Adlee, who inspired this story with her love of butter and her desire to have her “butter with nothing on it.”
