I’ve Created a Monster

August 15, 2008

Houston…. we are going to have a problem!

The girls have both been sick all week. There was a glimmer of being on the mend yesterday so I suggested walking up to the park to play for a bit. We decided to walk, so the Little One was in the stroller and the Big One was walking with me. We get about 3 blocks from the house and the conversation goes like this:

Big One: Mommy, it’s too hot to walk. You should dwive.
Fixitmommy: You want me to drive?
Big One: Yes, you should dwive.

So we turn around and walk back to the house. Yes, by this time we could have been at the park. But I had visions of puking, whining kids and trying to walk back didn’t seem appealing anymore. So we load into the new minivan and we set out for the park. The conversation then goes like this:

Big One: Mommy, it’s too hot to go to the park.
Fixitmommy: You think it’s too hot to go to the park?
Big One: Yes it’s too hot… We should just go to Stawbucks

OH MY! What am I going to do with her??? I think I have created a monster, she is only 3! Before anyone starts berating me for taking her to Starbucks, she gets the kids apple juice – half juice/half water. I think she just really likes the clear cups with the straw!

    Ha! My kids love going there as well for their own “coffee.” You know, the little hot cocoas in the coffee cup. They don’t know the difference and it’s super cute!

    We were there yesterday morning and my Big One saw our drinks and starting asking for “choc! choc!” (translation: “Chocolate milk”…only she often leaves out the “h”…)

    Good to know we aren’t the only ones raising little addicts!

    Don’t feel too bad, mine ask for the “coffee shop” all the time. We get the organic chocolate milk. Our Starbucks has Candyland and Care Bear puzzles too (awesome on those nasty cold Nebraska days)!
