The Drama of a Salad

Who knew that eating the smallest of small portions of salad could be such an entertaining and time consuming affair...
But alas, at my house tonight it was!
Lana started her small salad fiasco at 6:15

At 6:30 she was sitting at the table making comments like...
"This is just great, I need to be decorating the house for Easter and instead I have to sit up here and eat salad."

At 6:45 and half of the small salad eaten, the statement was...
"And not to mention that my belly is almost about to be ready to start hurting."

7:00, a little more progress and still running her mouth...
"My belly cannot eat any more salad, it's making my belly ready to explode."

One hour after this event begins it is finally winding down to a close. The plate is clean, but the last piece of lettuce is still in her mouth.
"Well I'm glad that is over with because that was the worsess time at that table of myyyy life."

Kids...gotta love them!

I can hear her saying that in my brain. My favorite is the quote about Easter.

Tell her it's rabbit food maybe that will help with Easter and bunny's and all.

Follow up...
Little did I know she really had been "decorating" the house for Easter.
Last night while sitting on the couch I noticed her little touches all over the room.
Very funny! I don't know where she gets it from!
