We brought home a basket of perfect little Michigan strawberries, the first of the season. I showed Caroline how amazing they were. She picked one up and asked to eat it.
"Noooo," I told her. "That one is too cute to eat!"
"Well, yeah, it's cute! But why not eat it?"
I said again, "It's just too adorable. I can't eat it."
She put it down and picked up another and almost rolled her eyes at me (almost).
"Mama. Just eat the cute strawberry. Life is life."
