Ok I just have to post this. For any family members out there reading my blog. Friday afternoon the girls and I were sitting at the kitchen table having lunch. The conversation went something like this:
Grace: "Mom, is Elly still sick?"
Me: "yes, she's very sick, honey"
Elly: "AWWW-daydey..." (in a horse raspy voice....daydey=gracie)
Grace: "awe Elly", "Mom you need to give Elly some ginger"
Grace: "because it always feels me better"
Me: "how do you know that? and where did you hear that?"
Grace: "Achachi (grandma) gave it to me. It's digusting, but Elly probably likes it".
Me: " how do we make it?"
Grace: "I don't know ask dad"
Me: "maybe we need Achachi to make it, I don't know if dad knows how to make it"
And the conversation ended...I believe the "ginger" she was referring to is actually hot tea with ginger and lemon juice that my mother in law has Grace drink when she's sick. It's an herbal cure for stuffy head, nausea etc. What I find interesting is that Grace remembers and suggested it for Elly as though it's a common thing. Although , it always "feels her better" she pointed out how yucky/disgusting it tastes LOL
