SNEAKY - MEMORY PROJECT DAY 18

(adjective)
furtive, sly

I have a very vivid memory of being sneaky when I was very young, definitely pre-school age.  My dad was not flexible at all.  If he said something, he was not inclined to back down.  This particular night, he decided that I would not be allowed up from the table until I finished everything on my plate.  I was not in the mood for mashed potatoes that particular night, so I was stuck sitting there for a very long time.  So long that everyone finally left the room, which gave me the perfect opportunity to scrape them back into the serving dish and announce that I had finished.  

I can't believe that my mother did not figure that out.  Maybe she didn't think I should have to eat the potatoes either.

Easter morning with the family who apparently did not own a lawnmower.  We had a cool bird bath though.
