A Proper Lady's Tea

While my mom was here she spent most of her time entertaining Lydia. Lydia especially liked riding horsey on my mom's lap. They would ride slowly like the "Old Indian Chief", fast like the cowboy...but her favorite was to ride like "the proper lady". She rides side saddle of course. Lydia started asking endless questions about what proper ladies do. "Grandma, how does a proper lady brush her teeth?"...."How does a proper lady make the bed?"

I thought it would be a fun ending to the visit to have a "Proper Lady Tea Party". It was a little last minute, so I didn't have a chance to go to the store, so I worked with what I had. After a three week hiatus, it was nice to get back into the kitchen again. I made some chocolate chip "biscuits", pulled out the nice china, and even let Lydia wear my pearl necklace. Lydia thought the floral napkins were "so wonderful".

A Perfectly Proper Little Lady

Lydia loved her "Apple Juice" Tea. I would have taught her to hold her pinkie up, but again, we were using my nice china.

So what was your response to "How does a proper lady brush her teeth?" My patients will love this story.

Dave - A proper lady brushes her teeth with a soft bristle toothbrush, gently and with one pinkie extended.
