What I Know For Sure

In my house if you want dessert, you eat your dinner.  I know, blah, blah, rewarding with food, blah, blah.  Olivia's and Grace's dinner consisted of one little taco with steak and vegetables and about 2 bites of re-fried beans.  Gracie powered through because she wanted dessert.  Olivia cried.  Actually, she's still crying right this moment just two rooms away.  It's been 40 minutes, she will keep crying well into bedtime.  Olivia is very determined.

End result, Gracie got to eat a dessert and Olivia didn't.  What did Gracie pick for her dessert?  Well, first let me tell you what would have happened if the situation was reversed.  Olivia would have wanted a big fat bowl of pink ice cream in a pink bowl that she would decorate with a little pink paper umbrella and eat with a pink spoon.  Would this be because Olivia LOVES pink?  No, Olivia doesn't really like pink.  Olivia loves yellow.  It would be because Gracie loves pink and Olivia wouldn't want to miss out on sticking it to her sister.  That's how she rolls.

Here is what Gracie had for dessert; two pieces of celery with peanut butter and a scant sprinkling of tiny white and chocolate chips. 

Here's what I know for sure; Olivia hates celery and peanut butter.  Gracie knows it too.  Gracie is a really nice sister.
