Piece of Meat

You never know what kids are going to remember and choose to recite... As we watched Bee Movie tonight, out of nowhere, Ivie pipes up and, verbatim, right along with the cow on the movie, says (in the same frustrated tone as the cow),

"Milk, cream, cheese... It's all me! And I don't see a nickel! Sometimes I just feel like a piece of MEAT!"

Why do I find that so stinking funny?!?

And another unrelated short story for you... Tonight, Ivie was mad at me because I wouldn't let her eat ice cream out of MY bowl instead of her own (I take my ice cream pretty seriously!). So she sat down on the floor in the middle of the kitchen and turned to me with her perfected pouty face, bottom lipped turned down into the biggest frown she could muster.

Macie, after taking a bite of my ice cream (she's allowed, since she can't use a spoon yet), turned and saw Ivie upset. Without hesitating, she took the 10 steps over to her. When she was about 2 steps away, Ivie held her arms out, in anticipation of a hug. And, sure enough, Macie dropped to her knees, into Ivie's criss-cross-applesauce lap, and wrapped her up in a big bear hug. Instantly, Ivie's frown turned upside-down (really pulling out the kiddie terminology tonight, aren't I?), and they both bounced up and proceeded happily back to their respective ice cream bowls.

Sometimes you just need a hug from your sister to get you back on track...

Concerning the Herman sisters' hug, this is why you need to have the Flip camera at arm's length at ALL times.
