My mom and dad want me to eat healthy and I’m okay with that as long as it tastes YUMMY.  Are you with me on this?

The other day my mom put a weird something in my dish.  I’d never seen this stuff before.  First I did the look and sniff test.  Not yet willing to do the taste thing I just sat there and looked at it. 

My mom said, “Lucy, just give it a try, will ya? It tastes really good…I wouldn’t lie to you.” 

Yeah, right!  I’ve heard that before.

Then I thought to myself, “What’s going on here?  She usually puts my food in the dish and goes about her business, but not this time. She is just standing there watching me.  Hmmm, something’s up…I think I’ll just wait a bit longer and see what happens next.”

Wow!  You’re going to love this. 

Apparently, it was so important to my mom that I eat this stuff, she walked over to the fridge and got out my container of cooked hamburger and put a big spoonful of it over this new stuff.  Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ll eat just about anything if hamburger is in it, on it or under it. 

So, I went for it and man, was I surprised.  That new stuff actually tasted pretty good. 

In fact, I’d eat it without the hamburger, but, shhhh, don’t tell my mom that, okay?

P.S. Family picture update: 

Now my mom is talking about doing a Christmas card theme with the dummies.  When will all of this be over?
