Trina (age 5) decided yesterday that it was critically important that she come up with step by step instructions for making a PB&J. I just had to blog it. I'm trying to make the punctuation reflect how she said it all.
First, you must obtain permission. If you are a kid. This is critical.
Next, you get out the bread. Don't smush it.
Next, then, you get out the peanut butter. Crunchy or creamy, your choice.
Next, then, you get a knife and a spoon.
Next, then, you get out the jelly. Make sure it isn't runny jelly, that's for pancakes.
Did I already get the silverware? Yes? Okay then.
Okay, so you take out two pieces of bread. And you close the bag. People will get mad if you don't close the bag.
First you put jelly on one piece of bread. That's what the spoon is for. Then you put peanut butter on the other piece. That's why I told you to get out a knife. Do NOT lick the spoon or the peanut butter from the knife. If you do, Mom <eye roll> will lecture you about bacteria and stuff and it will take a lot longer to finish your sandwich. So don't do it.
Mom's back... you notice, of course, that other than closing up the bread, there is nothing in her directions about cleaning up. Probably good, as I don't want her telling you guys that the only reason to clean up is so that Mom <eye roll> doesn't blow a gasket...
