I’m like to think that I’m not overindulgent as a legal guardian/grandmother. Then again, there are times when GN can get what she wants when she asks for it. To tell you the truth, I can’t even remember the last time I had a steak . . . probably a year ago . . . and I didn’t cook it that time either.
Goodnight asked me if I would take her out for steak two nights ago. She had a good reason. She won’t be eating any for a long while. Considering the frequency that we’ve had it, I doubt that she’ll actually miss it, but I’m easy sometimes.
It’s hard to see, but she’s a girl after my own heart. She chose purple and turquoise for her teeth! Of course! I took her out for steak and enjoyed our rather formal but last-minute date. I’m glad we did. She’s smiling in the photo, but she will be hurting for a few days, so she gets to eat mashed potatoes, gelatin, yogurt, smoothies, popsicles, and generally smooshy stuff until the initial pain subsides.
As for me, I got up at 4:00 this morning and peeled a BUNCH of potatoes, cooked them, then mashed the whole bunch to have ready for when she’s hungry, but can’t chew. I prepared a few other things for her to have on hand as well.
Yawn! Time to get to work . . .
