sour grapes

I still water down my kid's juice. Granted it's more juice now than it used to be, about 50-50, but it makes me feel better knowing I'm cutting out some unnecessary sugar by adding in the water. Teresa doesn't particularly care for juice...especially full strength juice. She actually prefers water. We have these juice pouches in our fridge in the basement that we bring out for parties, cookouts and impromptu gatherings and the other day while playing in the yard, the kids asked Joe for some. So he gave each one a pouch. Teresa's found it's way into the fridge up here. I hate to throw away food, so the next morning at breakfast I asked her if she wanted to finish it. She made a face and said, "I don't like it...it tastes like sour grapes." Now I knew she probably didn't care for it because it was full strength and she's not the biggest fan of juice anyways. I didn't think it really tasted like sour grapes or I wouldn't have done what I did next. I turned to Sam and asked him if he'd like to have it. He looked at me for a moment, to see if I was serious, and then politely said "no thanks. I don't really care for sour grapes."

I'm glad I'm not alone in my juice tampering. :) I think Sam thought I had lost my marbles so he was being polite so as not to upset the crazy. LOL!
