Chocolate for Breakfast

Jun 29, 2009

This past Sunday morning, my daughter got up earlier than the rest of us. She attempted to wake us, but I “shooed” her out of the room by telling her to go downstairs to watch TV. I then fell back to sleep.

A little while later, she came upstairs, whining that she was hungry. I pulled the pillow over my head to drown out the sound. I heard her ask me if she could get some raisins. I told her, “Fine. Just do it quietly!” and pulled the pillow down tighter.

About an hour later, I was finally up and about. I went downstairs and found the “remains” of Jordan’s “breakfast” on the coffee table. Chocolate milk and a candy bar wrapper! I didn’t see any stray raisins laying about.

“Jordan!” I called to her. “You’re not allowed to have candy for breakfast! You told me you wanted raisins. I agreed to raisins! Not chocolate!”

She looked at me very calmly and said, “I said to you, ‘Can I have raisins or something?’”

That little stinker.

“So, the something was a candy bar?” I asked her.

She looked me squarely in the eyes, said “Yes,” and walked away.

I’d like to say, “When will she learn?” but honestly, I think the real question is, “When will I?”

After all, it seems there is no end to the sneaky nature of a child – especially one after some chocolate.

That's hilarious. She's a smartie!

I used to not be able to leave the house without Spencer whining about chocolate. Every morning he got 2 chocolate kisses and then we were off. Thankfully he has outgrown that habit.
