"mary, why is your face so weird?!?"
"oh, because you have taken to hiding the peas in your mouth that you don't want to eat. awesome."
it's true. mary has done this a few times, but this particular night was the best/worst. i thought it was so funny though. i totally used to do this as a kid, especially with peas... and i still hate peas! so, i only made her eat a few bites. i let her drink from my cup so that as she was drinking the water she would swallow the peas. no luck. she drank about 8oz of water and kept them whole and secure in those cheeks. nice work, kid.
