Proud Parenting Moment #1198

Took the family down to the Satay Hut for dinner tonight. We smugly stuffed Goldie full of satay, curry and pad thai with tofu while watching the children at the next table turn their noses up at white rice. I decided to kick up my smugness a notch by filling her plate with raw bean sprouts, lime and sliced green onions. I gloated as she shoveled the stuff into her gaping maw. What a mature palate she has!

About 10 seconds after the shoveling came the screaming. What the hell!? Turns out that the green onions? Were HOT FREAKING PEPPERS. Now that poor kid has what looks like a kool aid mustache and whimpered while we tried to convince her to try the white rice.

We are waiting for children's services to come pick her up any day now.
