Moment of The Week!

Posted: March 4, 2013 in Moment of The Week

Shortly after we got settled into our new house, we were all sitting around the table eating dinner. My husband finished his food first and decided to indulge in some cookies and cream ice cream for dessert. After getting himself a nice heaping bowl he sat down to take the first bite. However, as soon as he did our little Elaina, who had just turned two, ran up and stood next to his chair with her mouth open wide. At first he tried to ignore her but it wasn’t long before she started grunting and tugging on his shoulder like a crazed caveman. With a sigh of defeat, he finally relented and gave her a bite. Of course she was not contented with a single bite and before he knew it she had consumed nearly half of his bowl so he finally stood up and went to finish eating at the counter. At first she cried but it didn’t take long for the wheels in her head to start turning. In a very matter-of-fact manner, she retrieved a chair from the table, pushed it over to where my husband was standing, climbed up and opened her mouth wide with an expectant grunt. My husband realizing that he had been outsmarted by a two year old just shook his head and gave her the reward her persistence demanded. The rest of us just laughed and suggested that perhaps he should save his desert time for after the kids go to bed. Live and learn!
