Yesterday evening we had to be out of the house at our normal dinner time. I sent hubby to tell Mawmaw that she HAD to eat dinner but we weren't going to be here when she did. Plenty of left overs and sandwich stuff, cereal, soup, etc.
He knocks on her door and she says come in, so he does.
She's in bed, had been asleep.
He tells her that we are leaving for a couple of hours, she HAS to eat something for dinner and lists a bunch of options for her.
"I can't eat now, it's only 4:30. It's too early to eat."
Him: "You don't have to eat now, you just have to eat something for dinner."
Her: "Oh, OK."
Ummm, anyone else see an issue here?
It's too early for her to eat dinner but it's NOT too early for her to be in bed asleep????
And no, she didn't eat. This morning when I called her on it she lied and said she ate leftover mashed potatoes and gravy from the night before.
Yeah, well, that would be pretty amazing considering I sent all of the left overs from that meal with Hubby to work for lunch.......there were no potatoes and gravy in there to eat!
