I have a cute story to share about Gracie
The other day we went to my Dad and Step mom's for my step brother's Farewell party, he is going to boot camp for the Marines at the end of the month. Well they had a big buffet of food. Although it was perfect for grown ups there weren't a lot of items for picky kids to eat. But Gracie decided she would go and make her own plate. I admire the initiative. She comes back to the table with a deviled egg and to black olives. Hmmm.....
Well Danny and I immediately look at each other and start to "mind talk"
Me: " What does she have on her plate?" with a fake oh my goodness smile on my face
Danny: "Is that a deviled egg and black olives? I don't even eat those items, oh this is going to be good!!!!" with a I can't wait to see this smile on his face
So she takes a bite of the deviled egg, which I am assuming she thinks is some type of dessert item. She immediately has this face like this is not sweet or good! She then hands the rest of the egg to Danny and says " Can you hold this?"
She then goes for the black olives. In the mouth, out the mouth. "Yuck" bless her heart she thought they were blue berries. :)
Oh gosh it was so funny. It was one of those you had to be there stories. The funniest part is that everyone at the table just watched her eat those items with wide eyes and big smiles on their faces. It was almost like a prank, but she pranked herself.
So much for stepping outside the pasta, macaroni and cheese box. Well good news she does like blue berries. :)
