Well, Banana Story first.
Yesterday morning Ben woke up early to swim before work so I was alone on breakfast duty with the girls.
Sam has baby cereal, Katie eats a bowl of cheerios. After Katie eats her cheerios, she has a banana. Almost every day. Kind of repetitive, but that's a toddler for you.
So, I get her a banana, peel it and notice it's a pretty big one, so I bite a bit off the end. When I bring it to her, she gets all upset, which I really should have foreseen and so, without argument, I go back to the kitchen to get her another banana.
I peel it and as I'm throwing the peel in the garbage...I take a bite of the banana. WHAT!? What was I thinking? I apparently take banana bites more often than I realized...so often that I did it automatically.
I spit the banana chunk out immediately and place it gently on top of the banana...maybe she won't notice? I'm cringing inside.
Back at the table I hand it to her and the banana chunk falls to the floor right away. She looks at it with big eyes and starts guffawing in amazement...I could see her thinking "How did THAT happen!?!"...I giggled hysterically along with her, obviously for slightly different reasons. Sam was laughing too. We laughed for a good 15 minutes. A nice way to start the morning.
I do realize, I was lucky to escape unscathed by a serious toddler tantrum.
Must drink coffee before offering the banana in the future. =)
Today we had a dance party...Katie loves dancing and Sam has started bopping along whenever there's music too. (especially when she's standing up, which she isn't in the following video). My only wish is that they had a better dance teacher. =)
