After we finished painting, First Son needed to eat some Valentine's Day candy. Even though First Daughter wasn't feeling well, she insisted on eating some as well. First Son was a little too generous in the sharing. Before I realized it, she had about five little candy hearts in her mouth, two in one hand and one in the other while First Son cheerfully handed her more. Oops. Luckily, she managed to chew them all and swallow them without choking.
After eating nearly the entire box of candy hearts, he announced he needed another piece because "I don't really like these very much." It's not clear if that was the truth or if he thought it was a good line to get another piece. It worked, though, because the candy hearts aren't my favorites and he did feed a lot of them to his sister.
