I wish I had a picture, or better yet a video, of this moment because it was absolutely priceless. I'm pretty sure if we did have a video that it would win the grand prize on America's Funniest Home Videos.
So we're at CFA (Chick-Fil-A for people like Jerry who don't know) for Kid's Night. We go every Tuesday night. Clare and Mat had a meeting so we watched little Reese (who tells me she is going to marry Owen someday) while they were gone. Neil's parents (Nana & Papa) were with us and Tim and Joyce met us there as well. Reese and Papa had been playing hard in the playplace with Owen, Blake and Nana and were taking a break so Reese could take a few gulps of milk and a bite of chicken nugget.
Neil looks over and says "Reese you are so much more well-behaved when you're mom isn't around." Literally two seconds later Reese is holding up her middle finger. Any onlooker would have wondered what her mother was teaching her. It even took me a second to see the piece of food on the tip of her middle finger. The three year old was simply showing us what was on her finger and not telling Neil off for his observation. Joyce and I had to turn away to control our laughter and not further encourage the behavior. I could just see her going home and showing Clare what she learned to do at Kid's Night with Aunt Hillary and Neil. Needless to say it was a bloggable moment.
Time to go pick Owen up from school. Until next time...
