How dumb do you think I am? Don't answer that...

Aidan hates eating meat. I've tried all kinds but she refuses to eat more than a bite or two. I start to freak out about it and then I remember that lots of people go their whole lives without eating meat. Sad, deprived people.

Anyways, Aidan obviously thinks that I am less than bright because she has started trying to trick me into thinking that she's eating meat.
First she slowly brings the piece of meat up to her mouth, maintaining eye contact at all times. She already knows that people don't look you in the eye when they're lying. Apparently she's been watching Law & Order when I'm not home. Then she licks the meat and smiles sweetly at me.

Then ever so slowly, never blinking, she brings her hand down and then hides the meat in her chair. Then she smiles at me and throws up her hands to signal that she's all done.

This kid is trouble.

Ha! Next thing you know, she'll be "going potty" with a pocket full of chicken nuggets to flush.

Man, that girl is smart.
Abbey still won't eat real meat- only chicken nuggets and turkey dogs. And she's still alive to tell the tale.

She's already an animal activist! Remind me not to wear fur around her...and if I do, discard of all red paint.
