Mommy Doll

The 4th Etc.

We went to firstfrost, harrock, and tirinian’s BBQ on the 4th. It was very nice, with lots of yummy food and good company. I was a little surprised that no one else brought small children, but the kids were reasonably behaved so I think it was OK with the folks there. Afterwards was another matter. Margaret has turned the corner into mostly being a non-napper, it is rough, and Duncan’s schedule was off too. To make matters worse, Margaret knew we were ordering from Red Bones for dinner, as we do every Monday, and so even though she was increasingly hungry she refused any food until the Red Bones arrived. I can’t really blame her, I wouldn’t want scrambled eggs if I knew ribs were on the way, but I could have done without the hour of whining between when I placed the call and when the food arrived.
