I have a child (left un-named so you won't harbor hard feelings toward him/her) who has no guile. You could call it no "tact" if you desire. But this child always speak the truth. No beating around the bush with this one. Maybe I've not taught this child proper manners? Maybe it does no good. I was surprised (well, maybe not) when this child told me after eating dinner, "This was the grossest meal of my entire life."
No one else seemed to have a problem eating coconut fried chicken tenders, wild rice, and broccoli. Well, maybe Mike, because he dislikes coconut very much. Is it really that gross? I think it is time to sit down and have a one-on-one with this child. Maybe we should all just do a manners/etiquette course?
For what it's worth...I LOVE coconut. I spread coconut oil on my toast. I could eat coconut creme pie every single day, and I LOVE Almond Joys and Mounds candy bars.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
