From the first day that I saw the skate shop on 11th in Eugene I have yearned to attend a roller derby bout. Last night, due to discount tickets given to grad students my dream was finally fulfilled.
This morning we were talking about our favorite things. When I asked Daisy what her favorite treat is at first she said a lollipop but then she wanted to change her answer to cucumber.
I wanted to encourage that kind of thing because when your kid thinks a vegetable is a treat it makes you look like a really great parent. The truth of it is that I really think she is being sincere. Don't get me wrong, this girl loves all things sugary, but she has a special place in her palette for cucumbers. The other day when we got home from the store I turned my back for a second to put away the groceries and when I was finished this is what I found.
She had bitten a hole through the plastic and eaten the cucumber in half.
Another Bonus Story: Rocky has gotten a little bit obsessed with opposites. On the way to church we were playing a game and I would say a word and she would say its opposite. This game is fun for like 5 seconds. I went through everything I could think of, light/dark, old/young, you know...the basics. But she kept asking for more so I started giving tricky ones. When I asked her what is the opposite of Daisy she said, Not-Daisy. The coolest though was when I asked her the opposite of cookie and she said bacon.
When I asked what is the opposite of church Brandon said, roller derby.
