Random tidbits

We were in a local grocery store ....
Cantaloupe (C) : Amma, please buy me Samosas
Me: No dear ... you have still not completely recovered from your cough
C: Amma pls ..
Me: You pick ... want a new tooth brush or this samosa ... I am not spending on both
C (happily): I want the tooth brush please ... but the Pink Princess one ..
Me: Of course honey ....

A bystander stared at this cruel mom who coaxed her daughter to pick tooth brush over samosas ...
Cantaloupe got to pick her tooth brush and cruel mom bought her tooth paste as a bonus as well !

@All: Well as much as I would like to believe I played smart, Cantaloupe realised I was more strict and she couldn't get everything she wanted.

She just made a smart choice ... I know I wouldn't have bought those samomas even she had picked them.

And she was super thrilled to select toothpaste for her and Junior.

You are quite the Howie Mandel of your household, aren't you? And you're blessed to have a daughter as smart as that to say "DEAL" at the right time for the right stuff:)

Hey CA - That was smart move! Offer a difft choice. What's with kids and new tooth brushes? I gave KB a new batman brush cz his toothbrush was all bitten...KG's brush was totally fine and new. But still she was asking me for a new batman brush. I didn't want it mixed up so I bought her a Dora brush. She was so super excited to brush last night. Man, this marketing of kids products sure works! KB now only wants Spiderman shoes or Star wars tee shirts and what not!
