Real deal

Today is the "REAL" birthday and Grace thinks we should have another birthday party and presents.   So instead of a party we are going out for lunch.  (This is a huge treat for me!  Eating out doesn't happen very much in the world of a stay at home mom.  Now Carl on the other hand...let's just say I have to admit my jealousy every once in awhile)

Where should my children ask to go? 

"....the place with rice with little carrots and peas in it"

"Oh - you want fried rice?"

"Yes, that is just the best rice in the whole world."

So we are going out to lunch for some yummy chinese.  And the best part is that I am going to leave the rice mess at the restaurant.   There always seems to be just as much rice in their bellies as there is on the floor and any mother knows that cleaning rice off the floor is just sticky.  (unless  you let it sit for a couple of hours and let it dry, but then you take the risk of having rice all over your house because it will stick to the bottom of everybody's feet.  Oh the dilemma's of having small children:)
