Slice of Life Tuesdays-Hosted by Two Writing Teachers
As my daughter begins to talk less jibberish and more clear speech, I am noticing little things that she's beginning to ask for...the writer in me is noticing little details about how she says these things and the latest and most notable for our house is the asking for "gol-ives".
You might be wondering...just what are gol-ives? Let me describe them for you so you know just what they might be. These things are very bite size-perfect little rings that fit right on tiny fingers. They taste very salty and are usually juicy. "Gol-ives" are black and brown colored and are just right for sprinkling atop a yummy bowl of crunchy lettuce or spinach-along with other tasty fixin's like shredded cheese, croutons and even tomatoes!
Have you guessed what gol-ives are yet? If you're thinking black olives, you're right! Nattie loves eating them along with her salad-and she usually pilfers off of my serving until there are no more. It's cute to hear her ask, "Golives? Golives?". When we finally figured out she was asking for black olives, it made sense! Say them together really fast-"Black olives" go ahead, I'll give you a few seconds...ok-so doesn't it sound like you're saying gol-ives if you leave off the beginning of black? Kids do say funny things sometimes and I am thankful for catching my "Gol-ive Lover" chatting up a storm and asking for yummy foods to eat...our Thanksgiving ought to be very speechy this year!
