Grandpa's Birthday and the Special Treat
My mother and father visited us this week to celebrate my father's birthday. They had not visited our home since June! My parents own and operate a large vegetable and pumpkin farm, so the prolonged absence was understandable. We decided to lunch at the Italian restaurant where I work. After a full five course meal, Pa-pa decided to give Aveline a special treat- her first taste of chocolate. She loved it...of course. After that bite, she was convinced that each and every bite should be hers. She would intently focus on the spoon, tracking it from dish to mouth. She frowned with disapproval if the mouth into which the spoon landed was not hers. I think we created a chocaholic monster.
