Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

We went out for dinner the other night to our new favorite Japanese hibachi restaurant. It was Jackson's suggestion to eat there. In fact, his request was, "Can we go eat at the place that makes big fire at the table?" I was just glad he wasn't referring to my cooking like that!

As a side note, I'm glad that if Jackson inherited anything from me it was his love of Japanese food. Because Jeremy? He can't say no to the little guy, and Jackson asking for my favorite food is fine by me!

And another side note, can I just say that the ginger dressing at Japanese restaurants is so delicious! I practically drown my food in it. I looked up the recipe once to try to make it and I quickly gave up when I realized that making it involved a lot more than opening up a bottle of Kraft Ranch ever would.

Anyways, we got seated quickly and the show began. That was when the real fun started. Jackson was given a pair of chopsticks and he loved them! He quickly mastered his pair, and got so good that he opted for a second pair!


You can thank me later for leaving out the pictures that involved Jackson mid-chew.

We all ate so much food that on the way home I remarked that I was stuffed. Jackson replied, "Me too, Mama. I ate so much that my belly is as big as Daddy's! And Mama, Daddy's belly is even bigger than the honorable Sheriff of Nottingham!"


After I quit laughing I finally glanced over at Jeremy. His only remark was, "Your blog post better have a disclaimer that I'm nowhere near as big as the honorable Sheriff of Nottingham."

Consider it done...

YUM! I love hibachi food. We used to have one close to our house, but I think it closed. I was pretty bummed. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that you don't exactly get the table to yourself to chit chat however you want to. And being socially awkward as we are...LOL.

You have a funny boy! Made me laugh!

Hi,
I hope you don't mind me leaving you a comment. I noticed you have a heart for Him and are a follower of Katie Davis' blog. I'm a 26 year old woman from England who has been called of God to become a Mama to many Ugandan children. I move to Uganda in January of next year and will be taking in children & loving them, just like Katie. I wondered if you might perhaps be interested in my blog. The link is:
