"Be A Big Girl, Like Daddy"

yup, you read it correctly...I actually said that. No nasty "u sure r a girl" comments please...:-)

We were eating pancakes one morning...(yes, I cook)...and to encourage Bella to eat more...I said the above. Shoving a forkful in my mouth, after realizing what I had just muttered...hoping no one had heard. (no one being Papa).
I wasn't to be that lucky, or forgiven...I got 'The Look'...and...the snicker, which took only a few seconds, precluding the all out burst of laughter!

Sometimes, ya hafta be a goober. Ya gotta talk gibberish, get all googly eyed...become a mush basket and suck it up. Being silly can, and will encourage the little ones to do what you want of them. Most times. Bella though, is at that age, where she can tell when Daddy is being a goofball. She will also, give me a look. Usually lowering her chin and rolling her if to say: "Um, Daddy, I am Much too grown up to fall for that".Thankfully, she will eventually crack that famous smile and spoon whatever food is in front of her, gladly into the mouth...followed up with a big ole "MMMM-YUMMY".

Of course, it will take some time to get the egg off Daddy's face...;-)
