The kids and I worked hard all day today on our list of chores. Even Raya had work to do:
I figure it's about time for her to start putting her own medical supplies away, right? :)
Since we got almost everything on the list done and it's been so miserably hot today, we took the kids for ice cream. We weren't going to buy Raya one but we knew she wouldn't be content to sit and watch the big kids eat theirs. Usually we just let her have tastes of what we have. She had no idea what she was talking about but she was very excited about getting an ice cream cone just because the big kids were. :) We bought her one, admittedly to avoid her throwing a fit. Donny ate a bit of it to keep it from spilling everywhere and then handed it to her.
She said "Eye fweem!" and had a lick followed by a surprised cold face. :) She enjoyed the little bit of it that she had but Donny scooped most of the ice cream out. He also took a big bite out of the cone to show her that it was edible too. She had a few nibbles of the cone and kept trying to trade me her soggy, half-eaten ice cream cone for my French silk pie blizzard. Dream on, kid! Then she decided to pretend that she was a baby and wanted me to feed her. (?!?!?!) Of course I couldn't pass up an opportunity to make up for lost moments so I obliged her. She let me fed her 3 or 4 bites:
As we were sitting at the table with all 4 of our sweet kids licking away at their ice cream cones, we realized that it was the first time we have ever bought Raya food. Kinda bittersweet. When all was said and done, she had probably eaten a couple tablespoons and a tiny bit of the cone and that was pretty good if you ask me. :)
