Yes, this was posted the same day as the first post that was written by DD.  I had yet to understand the concept that you might actually run out of ideas of what to write, so should therefore only post once a day.  At this time I could not imagine running out of topics!

 

Kids Have a Way of Drop Kicking Your Memories Like a Football!

 September 22, 2007

Once when my daughter was 8 or 9 years old, she was sitting at the kitchen table watching me prepare dinner, and I told her I had fond memories of sitting at the kitchen table when I was a little girl, watching Mama peel and slice potatoes for supper.  Mama would even occasionally give me a slice to eat.  I don’t quite remember why I thought that was a treat – have you ever TASTED a raw potato?  But, anyway, it was a nice memory, and, of course, I hoped my daughter would someday have similar memories of me.

Well, she soon enough put paid to THAT hope.  After I shared my tender memory, she sweetly shared HER version – “Mommy, when I grow up I’m sure I’ll have just as great memories of you shaking the potato flakes out of the box.”

I believe God gives us children to keep up humble!

    DD had that sharp wit even as a child! But I have to admit that I do occasionally think of that story when I’m shaking potato pearls out of the bag.

    How funny!

    Believe it or not, I still like to eat a slice of raw potato when I’m peeling them.

    My mother quickly embraced the instant kind when they were developed, much to my disapproval. I can remember asking her if she fixed “real” ones or “fake” ones. She replied that both were real.

    Odd thing though, it wasn’t important enough to make me offer to peel the real ones for her.
