Ummmm… That’s Not a Treat

April 5, 2010

When I travel without the girls I always bring them back a treat, or at least what I consider a treat. So in my last trip to NYC I bought outfits, really cute outfits. I get home, pull out the bag and I’m excited to see their faces once I do the “treat reveal.” 

 They are bubbling over as I pull out the clothes, not because they love them, but because they are still waiting for their treat. I try to explain that the outfits are the treat, and they like them, but according to Princess 1 “clothes are not a treat.” They insist the treat is the half eaten bag of plantain chips in my purse.  I give in and let them share the bag. I also make a mental note that next time I don’t have to try so hard.

The following week as I was on my way to New Orleans they don’t take any chances. Princess 1 says, “Can you bring us back a real treat, like candy or cookies or something?” And Princess 2 cosigns with a nod and says, “Yes Mommy, candy.”

At this point I wonder when the secret meeting happened to discuss my inability to choose treats. I also wonder if Princess 1 was voted spokesperson or if she took it upon herself to lead the cause.

Nevertheless, I went with candy. White chocolate lollipops (see picture) to be exact, and they were a HUGE hit. Wonder what my pep talk will be next time.

    So true at this age they don’t value clothes as much as they will in the near future. That sucker from NOLA looks so good!
