I have to tell you about 2 funny things that happened this weekend!

Yesterday, while I was making my grocery list, I let Lily watch the movie, Hoodwinked, mainly because her older sisters wanted to watch it and I didn't think she would really pay any attention to it as she was playing.
So off we went to the grocery store, (always an event), Lily, had just finished playing trick or treat with the vegetables, (She would take a bag say "trick or treat", I would put broccoli into it, she would put the bag into the cart, and take another bag...and on and on it went...) Every vegetable was individually bagged!! The cashier just loved us!!
Well, we made it over to the meat, and as I was choosing a nice cut of roast beef, Lily was singing loudly, and talking up a storm! She suddenly started shouting, from the top of the shopping cart, "You'd the hor'd Granny!!!! You'd the hor'd"!!! (it sounded like "your the whore granny")!
I drop my roast, and start shouting beside her, "Use the hood Red!!!" No way she stuck to her mantra, over and over again!!! No matter how much I tried to change it! Obviously she watched just enough of the movie to catch a phrase, but not enough of the movie to get it right!! LOL
Even today, she still is saying it, she really thinks she is saying Use the Hood! Even when she repeats it after me, she still sounds like she's calling Granny one of the oldest professions in the world!

The other funny thing happened at supper tonight. Lily, from day 1 has always "stored" food in her mouth, something we know will pass and is very common in adoptive children. However she has recently started to "gorge" her food, I don't think she even notices, she just forgets to swallow been bites, we don't even notice until she suddenly starts to gag because her mouth is too full. When that happens, we get up slowly and calmly from the table, finger sweep about 1/2 the the food out, and she continues on with supper. It happens about twice every supper. So we've started to feed her ourselves so we can make sure she is eating enough and slowly enough and most importantly swallowing! (don't worry, she has a plate in front of her, with food cut up very small, we've never taken away food or restricted it. We know how important it is NOT to do this.) She will learn that there will always be food here for her. However, I digress..
Tonight, after one of these gag moments, and she was trying to spit a little mouthful of food into Frank's hand, he tried explaining to her that she needed to make the food go into her belly, "way down into your belly". Well, she looked at him, food hanging almost out of her mouth, pulled open her top, looked down at her belly, and spat it out!! It was now at her belly!!
I suppose Frank should of explained himself a bit better!! The rest of us at the table just about peed!

Never a dull moment around here!!!
