In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post three photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics. Well, I like to look at them also.
E is very friendly when eating, or at least she was back when visiting us a few months ago. I understand that now she is more into the Twos than ever. Our daughter relayed a conversation about lunch the other day, which seemed to go along the lines of:
What kind of jelly do you want on your peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch?
OK, here’s your peanut butter sandwich.
No peanut butter, jelly!!!!!!
OK, here’s your jelly sandwich.
No jelly, peanut butter!!!!!!!!!!
(and repeat, with the number of !!!!!!!!!! getting larger and larger)
I’m sure that those of you with little kids have absolutely no idea what was going on there. I just know it was too many options. Should have just set it down.
But anyway, back visiting us we provided fresh blueberries with her cereal for breakfast. She always seemed willing to share:
We went down to E’s favorite restaurant, the Red Robin. One of the thing she likes there is the little kid’s packet they give out, with a coloring pad and some crayons. These she doesn’t share.
While there Mr. Red Robin himself came out. She was fascinated – from a distance. She just couldn’t take her eyes off the big red guy. At least, until he came by our table, at which point she dissolved into tears; I guess a six foot red bird is more enjoyable from a distance. But until then it was big eyes and interest.
