Sometimes they know just what to say or how to say it to change my mood completely.
Yesterday, Mr. Serious was home late from work and today, he had a “client dinner” (where they wine and dine him and a couple other coworkers), so it was me and the girls solo. I’m just a little run down, I guess.
(Up a couple times at night, being a mom taxi, figuring out a schedule for the little one, etc. The life of a mom of three small kids).
So, I might have bribed a bit tonight and told them we’d get a treat after dinner if they behaved and ate their dinner. Thank goodness. It worked. (The only setback was that I made the mistake of telling them we would go to DQ. Next time I’ll just tell them when we get there. Instead of it being a treat, they wanted to bargain for other places like donuts and the fro-yo place.)
I told them we could get blizzards and share them. That wasn’t good enough.
#1 wanted a cone. #2 didn’t know what she wanted.
On the way, she decided. “I want the perfect amountain of lizard.” And, I could’t help but smile. I was and am so happy that I did this little trip with my girls. It made them smile. It made me smile.
(Yes, she knows it’s “amount” not “amountain” but now she says it wrong on purpose, do get a laugh. She’s seriously going to be the class clown.)
In all truth, though, the mini? It is the perfect amountain of lizard. (For the record, hers was m&m, mine was heath, no lizards involved).
