Lil Miss Independent

Well yesterday was the first day since I started this thing that I didn't quite make it on ..Two of Guppy's cousins came in to town from Denver and Dallas so we went out to dinner...There were 16 people that went out to eat last night ..lol That was a huge damn table lemme tell you ...The waitress did awesome considering ..lol anyway when we first got there they had all the kids ( 6 of them ) across from all the adults ..Which was good for us ,that meant we could keep an eye on lil one ..Well one of his cousins decided that all the adults couldn't talk that way ( did I mention it was a huge friggin table ?) So we did some arranging and our lil Heather ended up at the head of the table down on the lil kids corner ...Oh my !!! I was a lil nervous because she is very independent (except at bedtime..lol she becomes daddies lil baby all the sudden ..lol ) Anyway ..She tells one of her new found friends (one of his cousins daughters ) That she can order her specialty if she would like ...She goes on to say that it is a Sprite with three cherry's and sugar around the rim ...lol She is a mess I tell you ..Anyway the drinks finally come and Heather's has no sugar around the rim ..Well she lets the waitress know this right away ...After the waitress lets her know she can't take the drink back up to the bar to get sugar, now Heather just looks disgusted ..( where does she get this from?) So anyway she proceeds to order spaghetti without meatballs ...And of course it arrives with meatballs ...she puts her first two fingers to her lips and poofs her cheeks out like "yuck" and says (while waving her hands ) I ordered "NO" meatballs ..I was mortified but so far down the table I would have had to yell loud enough for the whole restaurant to hear me to correct her and tell her to speak nicer to the lady .Well she gobbles up the dinner and apparently orders more ( without us having a clue ) She walks down to us and says "Can I have seconds " We tell her no ...to finish her drink and give it a few minutes so she will feel a little more full ( plus we knew Gramma would be getting her the famous HUGE piece of chocolate cake ) .Well she says ..Oh well I ordered seconds already ...we proceed to tell her you don't just do that blah..blah..blah...she is not at the house blah ..blah ..blahh..Someone else was paying blah..blah..and out comes the waitress with her second HUGE bowl of spaghetti ..We are watching and Heather says "I've changed my mind now " I wanted to crawl under the table and die ...That time I did get loud and told the waitress to leave it anyway ...OMG I have no idea what possesses this child to do some of the stuff she does while at a restaurant ...Never again will we sit that far from her until she is a lil older...lol Other than that we had a great time ..I had to leave the "party " early because I was not feeling well,but I am glad that Guppy got to see some far away family ...

  1. AHAHAhAhA.....sounds like you have a handful there...but I'm sure you aren't knockin' independence are ya??? That can come in handy for her in the future. She seems really spunky, I like that! :) But I think I would be just as mortified as you in that particular situation...funny though, thanks for the story!

  2. Oh jeez, this is Kid in a couple years. She's so bossy, and she's also so picky with eating too.

    I would have wanted to crawl under the table as well.

  3. Oh girl...that is nothing. You handled it well, though. If that is the worst embarrassment she ever causes you, consider yourself lucky. :) Sounds like you guys had fun!

  4. i don't know about this, if you place an order and they don't bring you what you want, i'd send it back. you are paying for what you want, so they should bring you what you order.

  5. you have to master the "look". you know, the look that could be felt from across the room, the look that says "enough, young lady!" lol!

    'coz my mom gave me the "look" when i was young, and i seem to have inherit it. works like a charm on anya! ehehehe...

    Kudos to you though for handling it.
