Carter Family Dinner...Act 1 Scene 3

This is the dialogue that happened at dinner tonight...enjoy!

Andi: "Look! I ate my chicken all gone!"
Cameron: "Great, now try some of your rice..."
Andi: "I don't like rice..."
Sami: "You don't? Since when?"
Andi: "I'm allergic to rice."
Sami: "You're allergic to rice?"
Andi: "Yes."
Sami: "That's too bad, I guess you can't have rice crispies anymore... (can you tell I'm grasping at straws here?)
Andi: "But I like rice crispies..."
Sami: "Well, you can't have them if you're allergic to rice..."
Andi: "But I'm not allergic to rice!"
Cameron: "Okay, then take a bite of your rice. Just try some, and see..."
Andi: "No. Can I get down from the table?"
Sami: "Only after you take a bite of rice. Rice and corn used to be your two favorite things..." (this is followed by a pathetic bite, allowing only about 4 grains of rice enter her mouth.)
Andi: "Now can I get down from the table?"
Sami: (while grabbing her plate and stacking it onto mine) "Fine. Go upstairs."
Andi: NO! I WANT IT, I WANT MY FOOD! I'M STARVING!!!
Cameron: "Too late, go upstairs."
This is followed by a huge tantrum, and a certain little girl going straight to bed WITHOUT a story. Sound familiar to anyone else with small children? If not, Wanna trade?

Little note added next morning: So, last night, after I posted this blog entry, Cameron and I were going to bed, and he informed me of a little discussion he had with Andi while putting her to bed. Apparently, she was crying, and every time Cameron asked her what was wrong, she would say: "I don't like mommy". Hey, it's not "I hate mommy" but I think I must be doing something right...

Well, I am finally attempting a blog for our family. If you want to take a peek, it's called theschmelterfamilyfunnyfarm. We'll have to see how long it takes us to figure out how to do this.
