"HOW DARE YOU!! -- here, take a bite, poor Mommy -- I WILL NEVER SHARE WITH YOU EVER AGAIN!! -- here, take another bite, that one was so small -- WHAT A TERRIBLE THING TO SAY TO YOUR CHILDREN!!"
We both laughed so hard we couldn't breathe. She went off to play with Liam while I made myself two more crackers.
