I introduced Maggie and Mistaya to a Popsicle today.
And it was a funny site indeed!
They were interested in the Popsicle but weren't sure what the stick thing was for.
Mistaya figured out right away that she could bite off pieces of the ice cold thing and eat them fairly quickly without getting any of the stick thing in her teeth.
But Maggie was a different story.
I tried putting it in her mouth at the back of her mouth so her back teeth could break it off.
She looked at me like I was a crazy person and why was I shoving this ice thing in her mouth?
So I acted like the good M.O.M. and patiently held it for her while she licked at it. I put up with this for a few minutes then decided that this would work better for both of us if I broke the Popsicle off the stick and let little Maggie eat it off the ground.
Of course she gave me that puppy look that seem to say..."Why didn't you do that before?"
