Making A Point
“He makes a point.”
“What? I didn’t say it was a good one.”
It’s Secret Subject Swap day and my subject was submitted by Someone Else’s Genuis
The eldest Grand turned 14 yesterday. As so many things this last year, it was a first for Hubs and I.
We’re starting new traditions and making new memories almost every day around here. So when Hubs asked him what he wanted for his birthday dinner, he asked for ribs…….
Yep, PaPaw made a special trip to a butcher to find just the right ribs. Turning 14 is a big deal, well ok, any family birthday is a big deal around here.
They cooked for almost 7 hours on the grill~ We did have some concerns about the youngest Grand eating them. He’s sort of picky. Nothing red, nothing with tomatoes, and well let’s just say the list is long and has been known to change A LOT.
I was so surprised to see the youngest dig in and start telling me how good the baked beans were, after all, they are kind of red. To say we heard this more than once is an understatement:
Beans, beans, the magical fruit
The more you eat, the more you toot
The more you toot, the better you feel
So why not have beans for every meal?
Hey, he’s 9. Of course it’s funny……….Add PaPaw teaching him different versions, well imagine all the grins and giggles.
Sitting at the table, watching the people I love best, eating a meal prepared by Hubs and I, listening to the laughter, watching the Birthday boy enjoying his birthday dinner, watching the youngest tear into the beans and ribs, when the youngest looks up, very serious and said : ” When I have kids, we are eating ribs every day and if they don’t eat them, I will ground them for a year”.
SIL looked up and replied “So I can ground you for a year because you won’t eat spaghetti?”…………
We all laughed and put in our two cents worth and the youngest looked at his Dad and told him ” You have a point Dad”. I don’t like it, but you have a point”.
Now get comfy and go see what everyone else had as their Secret Subject Swap this month~
