Thanksgiving Luncheon

It was an interesting afternoon eating lunch with Ashlyn at her 2nd grade Thanksgiving feast. The turkey was pretty good considering it was "cafeteria food," but the conversation was less than appetizing. Why is it that kids are not aware that certain topics should be off limits when eating is occuring? My three seat mates happen to all be friends, who happen to play together on the playground daily, and who happened to all get the stomach flu when Ashlyn did! They each shared their personal ordeal last week, in great detail while I descreetly tried to change the topic. By the time they finished their conversation, their meals were done, fully eaten and enjoyed while my plate sat half full...I hope next year's feast has conversation starters that don't begin with, "Well, you should have seen what I did in the garbage can!" The joys of motherhood are many!

Oh dear! Well, good try on getting the subject changed. Too funny!! I remember one Cinco de Mayo party in kindergarten that we had and Dani made me a plate -- it was lettuce. The teacher asked if I wanted guacamole or salsa and chips or beans or anything else and Dani said, "No. She doesn't eat." BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh well... I went hungry til I got out of there.

Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving feast!
