Sweet Addie

All the kids were home for Thanksgiving this week and we had a wonderful time visiting, shopping, watching movies, eating and just hanging out. Today when they all started leaving one family at a time the atmosphere in the house changed very gradually ending with complete silence except for the sound of the Packer game on the TV. It's amazing how a person adjusts from one extreme to the other in a minutes time.
As I was thinking about it, I had to smile recalling what our 2 year old granddaughter Addie said right before she left.
I had given her a little sucker for her trip home and as she unwrapped it and started to lick it very slowly and carefully I teasingly asked her if I could have a taste? She replied very sweetly, "No." So I asked her again if I could please have a taste, to which she responded in her tiny, soft voice, " No, grandma, it tastes yucky," and then she smiled.:)
Now how smart is that? What a polite way of saying she didn't want to share--they learn so quickly don't they?

Hope your holiday was a fun one.
