The other day I dropped the Dormouse off at preschool - or as we call it, Class Day - just as they were giving the kids their morning snack. The mere mention of food and/or snack among a group of toddlers always causes a mêlée and one of the kids wasn't happy with the bagel on his plate and preferred instead the exact same bagel on another kid's plate. The Dormouse stood up and wagged her finger at him:

"You get what you get, and you don't get upset."

He sat back down and ate his own bagel. Man, I wish I had that kind of steet cred with toddlers.
