sometimes you just can't deny your kids...


This has been a week when you must indulge the pleadings of your 5 year old because after all why not....

"Mom, can we please get asparagus?" (giant double pack from BJs) "And can I have some for lunch and dinner!"

I also caught myself from saying "No more peapods or we won't have any for dinner." "Eat all the vegetables you want," I said instead.

"Can I please do the lesson at Family Night" we've come a long way-- he used to not be a fan of family night which makes you feel like a parenting failure!

"For Family night treats, I choose a microscope instead of dessert!" (I had found one for a steal at marshalls and intended to put it away but when he of his own right asked to trade his beloved orange and vanilla swirl ice cream for it-- i couldn't resist) You know me a sucker for science.

"Can I watch the prophet DVD?" (very dry 15 min documentaries on the lives of the prophets-- he specifically requested Heber J Grant)

"Can I go to my room and listen to the Chasing Vermeer book on CD?" (it's 4 cds long- couple hundred page book)

What a great little boy!
