*The Sucker

"But Mom....It's a Healthy Treat!!
See the fruit on it?!"

This was the plea I heard from my daughter as she begged for what seemed like her millionth treat of the day.

*Look closely and you might see a strawberry on this-there sucker.

Sounds like I either need to do a better job of teaching her the meaning of "healthy" or she just needs to stop being so darn connivingly cute when she asks for them. Probably a little of both! Maybe she just knows sometimes her Mom is a sucker.

yeah, she knows her mom will give in! Isn't it just easier than a howling, crying child? I just wonder how I made it through, my parents NEVER monitored what I ate as a child.

WOW, she is so stinkin cute, I love that pict. I love how she tried to reason that it was healthy too. Smart little girl. I think all us mom's are suckers at times. It is hard to say no sometimes. Well I hope things are going good for you there. Miss ya!

Hilarious! Kaylea's trickery reminds me of my brother. He refused to eat real fruit but claimed that fruit snacks, fruit juice, gummy bears, starburst, etc. were to be considered fruit. Crazy kids! Gotta love their ingenuity.
