With a Promise and a Lick

On Sunday night, Grandma J la la loves to watch The Amazing Race, and then Celebrity Apprentice.  Here in Texas, Prime Time starts at seven, so on Sundays, it's a special treat to have dinner in the living room, smack dab in front of the TV.

But Grandma J is trying be be sensible about her dietary intake......she's come to the realization that it's not so much what she eats, but the quantity of food taken in. 

This Sunday, the decision was made to skip dinner and go straight to the dessert.

JJ likes this idea too....except he's not allowed to beg, and Grandma J never gives JJ any of her food.

She does let him lick the plate or bowl to save on dish detergent and water  once she is done.   He just sits there and stares at her....and stares some more.



But, sometimes Grandma J fore goes a bowl and eats right from the carton.   Especially if it's a pint  single serving size carton.  JJ just dives right in to lick up the remnants.





He knows it's well worth the wait, and he never misses a drop......


* Tomorrow I hope to have some really cute photos from the St. Baldricks Day Shave-a-Thon!!

Ohh he's so cute! Looks like he knew exactly what he was waiting for too. Love my amazing race and that train wreck of a show Celebrity Apprentice too. I always watch it the next day since it's on so late here.

We had a dog, once upon a time, that could count. When we had ice cream, she would sit on the carpet just watching us. As one would finish, the bowl was put on the floor and she would lick it clean. There were 7 of us, and she could remember who's she hadn't had! We'd always try to confuse her, but she never was confused! She was the best dog evah!

Oh my gosh the picture of JJ licking his chops is too much!- I have been known to fix my family dinner and then skip eating because I ate a row of Oreos :)

Buckeroomama said...

LOL! This is so cute! I love that you caught him in a "Yum, this is GOOD!" moment in that last shot! :)

So, his staring at you is NOT begging? I’ll be sure to NOT let Cocoa and Ozzie know this. 
The photos of him are adorable…so glad you do share, he deserves it after a hard day of being JJ. I loved it when we lived in TX and AZ and the shows all started earlier!!!

Grandma J said...

Suz, JJ stares at me because he things I'm pretty...at least that's what I tell myself. Or, he could be counting my wrinkles!

JJ is adorable! I like that last shot of him. So cute!

I'm sorry for the loss of your husband and brother. It is difficult to witness our loved ones suffer so much. Happy to know your grandson is a survivor. Gives all of us hope!

It's a small world, Grandma J! My family and I just moved from Harker Heights, TX to Germany last August. My husband worked in Fort Hood. How do you like Killeen?
