If you're a fan of The Sound of Music, as I am, you're already singing the part of So Long, Farewell where Leisl asks her father, Captain von Trapp, for champagne.
So long, farewell
Au revoir, auf Weidersehen
I'd like to stay
And taste my first champagne
The Captain, of course, answers with an emphatic, "No." Different story at my house, where Big Sister recently tasted her first champagne.
Before you start dialing CPS, rest assured that we don't serve our kids real champagne. Sparkling wine is just fine for them. Totally kidding. It was sparkling peach juice in a very fancy bottle. For a kid who's never cared for sodas or anything carbonated, this first taste of "champagne" was a big deal.
Yes? Really? Dada, you're supposed to say no.
Should I really do it? I'm not so sure.
That was fun. More, please!
What was Little Brother doing during all of this, you wonder? He was doing what all superheroes do -- putting on his underwear OVER his pants. Naturally.
