My son likes to come out with some pretty random statements.
“I like Sauce Pie Mummy,” he announced while I was hanging washing on the line.
“Mmmmm pie. Do you like it covered in tomato sauce like your Dad?” I enquired.
“Huh? No, I like SAUCE PIE!” he shouted at me
“Oh do you mean one that has sauce in it?”
“NO MUMMY, I LIKE SAUCE PIE,” he screamed at me, stamping his foot in exasperation at the stupidity of the Mummy species.
As I fished around in my useless memory for anything pie-related that might explain what he was on about, he burst into tears before shouting “SAUCE PIE” at me again.
While I cuddled him and made soothing noises, he looked up at me with big sad eyes and whispered, “I just like sauce pie.” Then he pressed the button on his toy motorbike to make it rev.
A bolt of inspiration hit me and I said what I thought it could be.
His face lit up and he positively beamed as he said “Yes Mummy, Sauce Pie.”
And all was right in the World again.
And now in the spirit of furthering your education, I present to you The Sauce Pie
It’s probably a good idea not to get your Sauce Pies confused with each other.
