TURNING SIX. AND MACARONI


BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE, TOO!

Our little Miss K spent the last day or so here at her Nana’s house. Her Papa and I love it when she visits…especially during the week as we get a chance to both pick her up from school and then take her back again the next day. At six years old she is the funniest little thing we’ve ever seen and my Mr. APGMan and I are usually in stitches before we wave goodbye...

Since my hubbs and I have been working on eating better over this past year, we don’t keep much kid-friendly food in our home (save for the fancy jars of candy and cookies we have set aside for our very special girl). So, whenever Miss K visits we must make a food-run to our local grocery store so she will have something palatable to eat. For dinner last night were having baked Salmon with a simple spinach salad and trust me when I tell you those two things alone would NOT pass the inspection test of our only grandchild (they wouldn’t have been acceptable to her daddy when he was a child either!).

I’ve been swamped with working on restocking my website so my guy offered to do the work and scrounge up something else she might like to eat. He happily found a box of Mac and Cheese in our pantry and figured that it would taste great paired with what we had already planned for our meal. After offering up simple prayer of thanksgiving, Miss K began to eat the delicious side-dish prepared especially for her.

“Do you like the Mac and Cheese?” her Papa asked her…

Miss K shook her head in the affirmative but then quickly developed a VERY strange (but a bit familiar) look on her face!

“What’s wrong honey?” her Papa continued

She then promptly said this:

“Well, it tasted OK when I FIR----ST (drawn out) tasted it…..BUT…. when I CHEUUUU---WED it on the IN----SIDE it was just NASSSSS----TY!

After a deep sigh she continued….

I think I’d rather have the kind made JUST for little kids!”

It was then I realized my AGPMan had given her some natural/organic (wheat) pasta I had purchased for my grandmother when she was here last summer.

We were on the floor reeling with laughter!

I’ve decide that being SIX is my favorite of all the ages Miss K has ever been! Young enough to be completely innocent and yet old enough to be one-hundred percent honest with her feelings!

You know, sometimes I just really LOVE my life! One day I’ll share with you the story of our Miss K and how her daily presence in our lives is nothing short of a miracle! Trust me when I tell you that God can make good out of what the enemy hopes will destroy you~

“He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.” Psalm 40:3

Blessings to you this lovely spring day…Rebecca

Hi Rebecca! Oh, how nice to hear from you! Your little Miss K is so beautiful! I can see in those pretty little peepers she must be a hoot! Looks like she's just thinking of some mischief! That's a darling story about the Mac & Cheese! When our kids were little, we'd always go to a cafeteria place for lunch after church - they always chose mac & cheese and jello! Kid staples!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your little Miss K is adorable, and I'm in hysterics over the mac and cheese incident. Aren't they adorably honest? I bet she loves visiting her Nana and Papa.

She is so beautiful! I bet that y'all have so much fun with her at your house. I love this age too when they are so innocent and honest. It reminds me of something that my 7 year old said to me the other day when I picked him up from school. I will have to post about it one day.

Have a great day!

You are so right about the age, even up to eight years old. This is where you start to see the personality shine through and it gives you so much joy spending time with them. I have three nephews, and when they were at that age, I had so much fun with them. I can't even imagine having a precious little girl like her to spend time with. She's Beautiful!
