Sneak or Sneeze?

I hate meal time. Seriously, my life would be so much better if I did not have to EVER feed my children. They would be so happy if we had pancakes for dinner every night. It is always a battle to get them to eat. Always. So last night we are eating dinner, and mind you we are having grilled chicken, rice and corn. Nothing horrible. Just simple easy food. Well they were convinced the rice had bugs in it. And so we battled on and on. Makenna tries scraping the rice around the plate to say she is done. Mark says, you need to take lessons from malaine on how to "sneak". A few weeks ago he caught her hiding her hands in the trash can unwrapping candy and shoving it in her mouth. Makenna says, "Malaine will you teach me to sneak? " Malaine answers, "Oh ok, you go like this... leans her head way back and says "ah Choo". We all look at her and Makenna says it again, will you teach me to sneak. Again, she does a big Ah Choo. Finally we realize she thinks she is saying sneeze. And no matter how many times we try to explain sneak, she would say, Oh ok like this, and continue to sneeze! It was way cute! She never did get what Makenna was talking about! and never did understand why we were all rolling on the floor laughing! So makenna never got her lesson in being a sneak, and yes she did eat all of the rice!
