Ok, it's taken me a while to get around to blogging this,but here it is.
We went to La Fondue on Monday with Rich and Angelica because they are moving back to Germany, Bill had never been there, and we had decided long ago that we had to do that before they left.
By the time we were getting food it was past the girls bedtime. Sam couldn't hold out through dinner and fell asleep before dessert was served. Riley, on the other hand, was determined to stay awake. (She's been like this since birth - my little night owl. We believe she thinks she's going to miss the party we have every night after she's gone to sleep.) Anyhoo, dessert came, chocolate fondue of course, and with it little plates with strawberries, grapes, bananas, apples, marshmallows, snickers bars, rice crispy balls, and cream cheese balls rolled in cinnamon. Riley saw all of us taking things off the tray to eat, so she reached over and took a strawberry. That was pretty good so it was followed by a grape. Apparently after that the large marshmallow looked good, so she grabbed one of those. Of course I forgot to mention here that she was sitting with Bill all this time, so I was unaware of the happenings. Next thing I know, Bill mentions that she has the aforementioned marshmallow. When confronted, his first line of defense was, "I didn't give it to her, she got it herself." When that didn't work it was followed up with, "I wasn't holding her, she was standing on the booth next to me." As he's mentioning all this, he is dipping his own marshmallow into the chocolate which Riley is carefully observing. She asks him for some but is told it's for Daddy not Riley at which point she throws down her marshmallow, and goes for his, gets a little chocolate on her fingers which she loved (she is her mommys daughter). Next thing we know everybody is dipping stuff into chocolate for her.
Sooooo, her suspicions were confirmed - we do party every night after she goes to bed. Back to regular food. The support group may resume their meetings after they pick their jaws up off the floor. ;)
