Friday, my first week of work completed after the sickness. It was more difficult to get back into the routine than I thought, I definitely miss the naps ;-) Anyways, time to link up for Finish The Sentence Friday.
Once, in public, I saw somebody...
... stealing Lily's pretzle.
I was at the playground in town with the girls, meeting with a friend. I had gotten some soft pretzles for the girls as a snack, and Lily insisted on sitting all by herself a couple of benches away to assert her independence. As we were eating, a group of mentally handicapped people with their guardians came along and sat on the benches. Suddenly, Lily came running to me, crying. I first thought she was just scared of strangers sitting next to her, but then one of the guardians approached me and apologized to us. Obviously one of the people has snatched the pretzle out of Lily's hand and eaten it.
Poor Lily didn't quite understand why an adult had "stolen" her pretzle. We talked to her about what it means to be mentally handicapped, and that the man didn't want to scare her or take her food from her.
Another pretzle later, Lily was happily playing again, confirming again that it was NOT ok to take her pretzle.
