Are we raising the teacher’s pet?

As she’s being picked up from preschool:

Amelia: Mommy, I didn’t eat my cookies. (The special treat Mom packed in the lunchbox…there’s almost never dessert in there.)
Mommy (in stunned disbelief): Huh? Why not?
Amelia: Because I didn’t finish my lunch.
Mommy: Ok, well what didn’t you eat?
Amelia: My goldfish.

Forensic examination of the lunchbox uncovered precisely 6 uneaten goldfish and two completely intact, uneaten cookies. Holy cow! What kind of kid has that much discipline when Mom and Dad aren’t around?
