Suprised At Dinner

Toward the end of dinner Caedmon, my 7 year old daughter, expressed how full she was.  She gasped sweetly, “I shouldn’t have eaten the last bite.”  Being the good father I am, I went to grab her plate to put in the sink–this is a treat for her because usually she has to clear her own plate.

Just as I grabbed for her plate, she changed from my subdued daughter to a wildcat with the fierceness of a convict protecting her last meal.  With Mr. Miyagi reflexes she grabbed my wrist without looking and then mimicked the Terminator with a her head turn growling, “I’m not done.”

Jess and I both both slide our chairs back an inch and I immediately went into the exorcist rite in Latin.  Ok, the last part may be a bit of an embellishment, but she did surprise us.

I guess she wanted the last bite.
