There was eating in the world of Lexy last night. Actual eating. Chewing, swallowing, forkfuls of eating. Okay, maybe not forkfuls, but actual eating. And I don't know if it was because I smothered everything in tomato sauce, or it was Josh's friend that spent the bulk of the meal talking to her, or the promise of a piece of candy for dessert if she would just swallow that last mouthful of broccoli. But, does it really matter? It was as stress-free as a dinnertime meal in the household can get and for that I am thankful.
Oh, and for those of you who didn't know that my kid is brilliant and is way advanced for her age? I just have to tell YOU. Last night after I put Lexy to bed I went to my parents house to help my mother decorate her Christmas tree. I told Lexy I was going out and she was still awake when I left. At some point in the evening, Josh went upstairs to tell her to go to sleep (this has been another on-going saga). Their conversation went something like this:
"I need to talk to Mommy."
"Mommy is sleeping"
"No, she' not. Mommy went to Nana's house. I heard the garage door go up and down. TWO times."
"You heard the garage door go up and down TWO times?"
"Well, I can't fool you, can I?"
Told you so.
Happy St. Nicholas Day, my friends. I hope St. Nick left you something nice in your shoe.
