So I started something last Monday when Jake had his first day of kindergarten — because it was his first day of school, I let him choose what we would have for dinner that night. Being a five-year old boy, and the offspring of his father, he asked for “Pizza, Pizza”. Of course by that he means pizza from Little Caesar’s, but I think their sauce is too spicy, so we often order takeout pizza from Happy’s Pizza, which is what we did that night.
I didn’t connect that since today was my wife’s first day of school, she would want the same prerogative, of deciding what we had for dinner, but I let her choose. I’m happy I did, because she chose takeout from Outback Steakhouse. We love their teriyaki medallions!
