Here we are, celebrating Thanksgiving with the grandparents.
Each kiddo has a small helping of meat, veggies, green bean casserole and crawfish dressing on their plate.
I keep trying to encourage the Gator-boy (age 3 1/2) to try his food. He'll eat all the meat but nothing else!
I point out that crawfish is meat....."NO!"
wanna try some off Momma's fork?...."NO!"
I'm gonna steal it if you don't eat it....mmmm mmm...so good....here, you wanna bite? ... "NO!"
OK, fine, I give up! eat the meat leave the rest, at least you're quiet and happy and not starting a food fight in Mimi's formal dining room.
Then I get caught up cutting meat for Sonshine......
That's when I hear it.
I turn around to see that Grandad is helping Gatorboy search for, find and EAT all the crawfish out of his dressing.
I may have to change my name.
:-) Grandparents have magic!
