The Meltdown over Chicken

*supposed to be posted on Monday....accidentally saved instead of posted* Who knew a 14 month old could go ballistic over chicken....Well we had our proof on Saturday. We decided to go out to lunch at one of our favorites, El Torito. We got all seated, with drinks, and chips and salsa. Our food took awhile to get to us, and Zoe was not content with chips and lettuce. So when her chicken tenders came, she immediately grabbed one to knaw on. They were pretty big so I started to cut the other pieces up for her. When I finised cutting up all the other pieces, I took the one piece out of her mouth to cut up while she ate the little pieces. Well she was not having any of that. She proceeded to scream to the point of silence and then some. Even after I returned the large piece of chicken, she was still crying. I had to get to her of her high chair to comfort her. Zoe is normally very content in restaurants. I felt so bad for the other patrons. * If you were at El Torito on Saturday afternoon and sitting near us, I'm so sorry. I tried to calm her down as best I could* She did eventually calm down, but man who knew she would get so upset over chicken... She is learning her "No-No" all over again and responds to every questions with a "No" even when the answer is "Yes." She is also quite the dancer when she is in the mood. I entertain her by singing "Apples & Bananas" in the car on our way home. She laughs when Ryan runs around with her blanket on his head and does Kung Fu moves. I think she's getting more teeth. I'm back in a crafty slump although I did make some home decor for fall, it's a pencil bouquet, inspired by the line from the movie, " You've got Mail" about freshly sharpened pencils. I think I'll be decorating in a school theme this fall. I still need to change my throw pillows. Ugh, the "To-do" list never ends. XOXO, Holly & Co.
