During our trip to the grocery store:
Dev: Mom? Can we get donuts?
Me: No, I’d rather not buy a box of donuts. We don’t need a lot of unhealthy stuff at home.
(Upset reaction. Pouting. Lower lip sticking out.)
A few minutes later…
Me: You know, it’s not like I’m trying to torture you by saying no to the sweets. I love sugar too. In fact, if I could eat an entire bag of marshmallows right now I would.
Dev: If I could help you eat an entire bag of marshmallows right now, I would!
Have I mentioned how much I love him?
