Conversation with Daughter

Daughter:
I love these Hostess cupcakes. I want them everyday for my snack at school. And I only like Capri Sun "Lemonade" juice boxes. It has to be "lemonade" flavored.
Me:
These cupcakes are kind of expensive and not really good for you. And you only like lemonade?

Daughter:
Yes that's all I want for my snack.

Me:

OK, whatever. (I don't feel like fighting with her over it)


TWO WEEKS LATER

Me:
Don't chew on your hair.

Daughter:
(whining) But I'm hungry. All day at school I'm hungry. (starting to cry) And all you give me is the same thing for my snack everyday. Everyday it's cupcakes. I'm sick of cupcakes. And I'm sick of lemonade. I want some fruit punch. Why do you always give me the same thing for my snack & drink? (saying this all while crying.)

Me:

You are the one who told me you only wanted cupcakes and lemonade everyday! (getting mad)


So today I went out and got mini-muffins, pop-tarts, cheese nips, and fruit punch! That should be enough variety for her! Unbelievable!

  1. That is hilarious. Sadly, I do this same thing to my fiance. He thinks its adorable in a way only a man who loves a woman could, but I am so wishy washy. LOL.

  2. Kids are nuts. They don't know what they want, that's why they have parents who know what's best for them. I do like those Hostess cupcakes too though.

  7. Hi Sue,
    I was enjoying reading your conversation with your daughter. I think it was great that she finally asked you, why you always give her the same snacks. Communication is always good, even if the adult didn't do anything wrong. You helped your daughter out once again. Kids, you gotta love um. You are a great mom Sue! :-)
