Kids don't forget a promise of sugar in their future

So, last night, after my 2 yr old had come out of his room for about the fiftieth time, naturally trying to avoid bedtime, he came out one more time and caught my husband eating ice cream in the den.
So, naturally again, he ran to the kitchen silverware drawer, pulled out a spoon, and started demanding ice cream. We told him no, he cannot have ice cream when he is supposed to be in bed and after we had brushed his teeth, and we told him he could have ice cream tomorrow. Just not tonight.

He sadly shuffled into his room, holding tight to that spoon, and said, "Okaaaaaay." Very pouty. And very cute.

Fast forward to this husband had to get up early to go out of town for the day for work. And wouldn't you know it, our son woke up at 6:30 am, shuffled back into the kitchen, rubbing his eyes, barely awake, his hair stuck up from sleep, still carrying that spoon, and looks at my husband through sleepy eyes and says, "I keen. I want my i keen."

How could we say no to that? So, Max had vanilla ice cream for breakfast. Sometimes, you just gotta give in to the cuteness.


  1. Hey, it is dairy!! What a cutie!!

  2. Please say you'll invite ME for breakfast one morning? I promise to get dressed and brush my hair first.

  3. That's our boy! Vanilla...a man after my own heart.

  4. LOL I would have done the same thing:)

  5. Don't fight the small stuff I always say-LOL!

  6. Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.

  7. Great, now I'm going to have Cherry Garcia for breakfast tomorrow morning.


I love your lovely thoughts...
