"Mom, give me a drink."

We were eating in the hospital cafeteria. Abby was eating grilled cheese, cucumber pieces, fries and yogurt (not a shocking combo).

I also had a Styrofoam cup of water for her and was letting her sip from a straw.

I asked her if she was ready for water, but then realized she had just put a piece of grilled cheese in her mouth.

She leaned in to take a sip of water, but I said, "Nope, have to wait for you to finish chewing your food first."

So she spit the piece of food into her hand, set it back on the table and leaned in for a drink.

Well, okay then.

And, yes, she resumed eating the same piece once her sip was completed.
