It was just Mattie May and I at the house one night last week. We laid in the bed watching "Special Agent Oso" and when it was over, I turned off the TV, we prayed, I told her a story and she drifted off to sleep - so I thought.
I got up a little later to do some things around the house and check some things on the computer. I had been on the computer for quite a while, when I hear her little foot steps on the floor. "Lolo, I hungry" she says to me as she goes to fridge and gets lettuce! "Will you fix me a salad?" A SALAD!?
"May May, do you really want a salad?" I asked her.
"Well, maybe just a sandwich."
"OK May, what kind of sandwich?"
"I want a sandwich with bread, peanut butter and maybe can I have a little bit of jelly?" she says as she wrinkles her little nose and shows me "little" by pinching her thumb and index finger together.
I make her the sandwich as I hide my laughter. When finished I asked her if she wanted it cut.
"Yes! Can I have triangles? Four, I want four triangles!"
No one ever said this kid wasn't specific in her request!!!
