She wasn't happy. Should I have lied?
Sheepish in Sheepshead.
Dear Sheepish, You did the right thing. Take the heat up front, besides you know the kid would rat you out, nothing personal, that's just what kids do. And I know it's a bitter pill you're the grandma, whatever. But to keep peace in the family you need to bite your tongue and feed the kid what the mother thinks he should eat.
God bless, Donna.
PS. Awesome dinner though.
