my word...

The words were out of my mouth...before I gave them a second thought. 

If I was wrong...I would 'eat my shirt'. 

I was wrong!

How would I keep my word to my granddaughter? 

Where there's a will...there's a way.
  

I invited the girls for dessert. 

They had cookies and cinnamon rolls...
I ate my shirt.

 Emme helped me get started... 
but I think I'll be eating at it for a very long time...
since it was a big shirt.

   
Sometimes we have to eat our words!

  8. Now that's a nice dodge. If I ever have to eat my hat, I'm following your interpretation of the noun!

    Great family memory made with that!

  14. You are too much! What a wonderful grandma your grands have, and what a valuable lesson you taught them. Picture lessons speak volumes to little ones. You are just so clever. Somehow I knew you would do this, although the promptness of it certainly has impressed me. Great post!

  17. Oh Judy, I loved that!
    It's so important to follow through when we promise things to children (TGD was always getting into trouble with this when our kids were little) and you followed through with flair! Your granddaughter will always remember the day you ate your shirt!
