Elli went to the store with her dad recently and came home with this.
He's much nicer than me in the store. I'm the queen of "No!" Of course I take her shopping MUCH MORE than Don does. So he doesn't deal with the constant "I WANT" with everything she sees. She just starts spewing out everything that comes in her sightline in hopes it's something I might respond to. It's actually kind of comical. "Can I have a donut? yogurt? ice cream? Toaster Struedels? Chicken nuggets? Bacon? Corn Nuts? Doritos? Lunchable? Sugar Cereal? It seriously goes on, and on, and on. It's a nightmare. Of course I remember being the same way.
Poor Elli just drinks water most of the time anyway. And you know why? That's what she likes! The girl likes water. We are so lucky. We don't drink soda. We stopped drinking it years ago so we never have it in the house. She's tried it. But she doesn't really like it. She'll occasionally drink juice or milk. But what she really likes is water. Yeah!

|Plop! (uh, check out the excellent photography here people! I caught the plop in action!)|

It's healthier than soda. And they sure had fun with it.
What do your kids BEG for in the grocery store? How often do you give in?
