Corey's mom, who normally keeps Lily, was under the weather, Tia had to work, so Corey took a day off from school to be with Lily.
There is a salad, pasta salad, fruit table that includes rolls and cornbread, an entrée table that includes green beans, spinach casserole, yellow creamed corn, white beans, chicken fingers, chicken livers, barbecue, ribs (sometimes), and catfish fingers, and an apple and peach cobbler table!
Now, Lily does not go for this offering, she is accustom to her plate of green beans, carrots, and chicken wieners! Seriously, she does not want the “store bought” fare; she loves what she is used to eating at home. Rarely does she even look in the direction of a plate like the one shown, piled high with the best food anywhere.
This goes against everything grandparents are programmed to do. We want to shove everything good at our grandchildren – carbs, fats, and sweets – but in the long run I suppose this is best.
I just hope I live long enough to spoil her with something good to eat!
