So today, I go and pick Alanna up from her class and the first thing out of her mouth is "Mommy, more tomatoes, please!" Actually, it was more like "Mommy, muh matoes, PWEEEEEEEASE!"
No "Hi Mommy" or "Love you" or anything.
She seriously LOVES those things! The problem was...I didn't have anymore tomatoes. So I offered her goldfish crackers instead and she kissed them and said "my crack-oos."
She's a funny girl.
Then....we go to the health food store and the nice lady offers her a free sucker while we were checking out. Before I could respectfully decline, Alanna had her hand out and said "Yes Pwease." She totally understood what the lady was saying and took advantage of the opportunity!
Please excuse the awful cell phone photo.
By the time we got home, her hair was standing straight up and was super sticky. So were her hands, legs, arms, and feet.
(She takes her shoes off in the car. Every time.)
Why can't the stores offer a piece of cheese, or a peach, or a box of raisins?!?
Probably because it's no fun giving away healthy stuff and that would take all the fun out of it for the kids I suppose.
(Gosh, I just thought about her trying to eat a peach in the back seat of the car and the subsequent mess it would create and decided that the sucker may not have been so bad after all!)
P.S. For anyone that cares, that sucker was 100% organic and sweetened with agave nectar. We don't do real sugar 'round these parts. <----my Texas accent coming out. LOL! Man, the people that didn't read the P.S. down here really missed out.
