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!
