N8 (while I was washing a muffin tin): "Is that for making American muffins like we had last night?"
Me: "The corn bread muffins?"
N8: "Yes, those are American muffins. The other pan (the baking sheet I was also cleaning) is for muffins from other countries."
Me: Puzzled as usual and frantically trying to think of what he is thinking so I do not make him feel frustrated. And therefore potentially shutting him down. Furthermore causing him years of self doubt. *pause* Light bulb! "You mean for English muffins?!?!?!"
N8: "Yes. I like the American muffins. And cupcakes."
Me: "Me too Buddy. Me too."
